Just spoke to Dad. He is in Torridon YHA for the night. He did stop off at the Torridon Hotel http://www.thetorridon.com/ (how posh is that!!) but fish and chips were £12.00 so he had a pint and cycled on! There are great views from the hostel. http://www.syha.org.uk/hostels/highlands/torridon.aspx
Today has been a hike/bike day as it's been very hilly. From Balmacara he took "B" roads through Duirnish and Plockton and onto Stormferry. From there he headed on the A890 to Strathcarron and around Loch Carron. He stopped off for cup tea and a bacon buttie at the Wee Tee Shop at the Lochcarron Golf club. He also did a shop and found a bank in Lochcarron as well - that's probably why he is staying in the YHA as he has some cash! He then headed off along the A896 towards Kishorn. Met up with another couple of bikers Joe and Ally Marsh from Hexham. Then it was on through Shieldaig and into Torridon.
Weather has been great today and he is still enjoying it.
Hopefully in the next couple of weeks his path will cross with the guy from the Observer (Mike Carter). Will keep you posted on that.
I might not have time tonight to do a weekly summary ....
