Opened our curtains on beautiful views and sunny blue skies. Straight onto the coast road which undulated as we had been forewarned but was immensely enjoyable thanks to sweeping downhill curves and fabulous ocean views. 30 miles to Thurso and our early lunch stop. There was an up beat aura within the group as we had only 20 flattish miles to go. The group split with some going to Dunnet Head the most northerly point of the uk and others heading straight to John o Groats. The sun continued to shine as we all assembled for official photos and obligatory champagne. The Fab Four have made it and feel understandably euphoric! Mileage covered on route 1033, feet climbed – lots. Fantastic trip, well organised, good guide (Chris Ellison) and good company.
Been there, done it!
