We’re in Tain this evening – a small town north of Inverness and quite close to John o’ Groats – which we should reach tomorrow.
It’s been a little testing the last few days – partly getting re-acquainted with cold and rain in various campsites. We’ve also not been able to source an affordable camper van as yet and so today rented a small diesel panel van for a few weeks at very reasonable cost which will do for the moment. It’s not a plug-in hybrid which would be more appropriate but at least it’s not a guzzler.
The Scottish scenery is magnificent and coming through the Cairngorms we saw some patches of snow (the last snow we saw was on distant Himalayan peaks from Rishikesh last November).
