Kyle of Lochalsh

Just been speaking to Dad. He is camping at Balmacara. He had cycled on to Kyle of Lochalsh but could not find anywhere camp so had to double back to Balmacara to a campsite he had cycled past. Nice campsite with a hotel opposite so he's off for a pint later!

He had to pack up his tent this morning in the rain but once he got going on the bike the weather picked up and the rest of the day has been really good. From Invergarry he took the A87 and had to cycle up hill for one hour to a view point at Glen Garry. However after every uphill there is always a downhill and Dad coasted down to Loch Cluanie and cycled along to the length of the Loch and stopped off at the Claunie Inn for carrot cake and coffee but at £4.75 Dad is glad he wasn't staying for lunch! Again yet more downhill, all the way to Shiel Bridge were he stopped off to get some shopping. Dad stopped off for lunch a Eilean Donan Castle. Thankfully he took some photos as the Castle is "world" famous!! It's a pity I didn't know he was going as I could have kept an eye on the webcam

Dad has been chatting to a guy on the campsite from Mansfield who is touring on his Harley Davidson! I did ask Dad if he had asked for a ride!

Well he has cooked up and is off for a well earned beer tonight.
