Well Dad decided to move on. Weather was fine this morning so he thought he'd make the most of it. Had a good night in the bunkhouse. There were only five people in and Dad had a room all to himself! He did a shop before he left Durness. He headed off on the A838 and cycled down one side of Loch Eriboll (10 miles) and then 10 miles along the other side http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loch_Eriboll Today has been a windy and hilly ride. In fact at times so windy Dad was pedalling downhill! He then headed over the Kyle of Tongue bridge into Tongue http://www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/tongue/tongue/index.html . What an ace name for a place - glad my parents didn't name me after that place though :) Dad then headed off towards Bettyhill http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bettyhill
Dad has met up with a couple of bikers who are doing the end to end (Lands End to John o'Groats) so he is off for a pint with them tonight.
Dad and Mike Carter (the guy who is cycling the other way round Britain and writing in the Observer) http://www.guardian.co.uk/profile/mikecarter are hopefully going to met up on Sunday in John o'Groats.
Well I must say I missed Dad today ... I've had to cut my own hedges! Hopefully they will last now until he comes back. Sorry Dad but you do a much better job than me :)
