We set off at pace out of Inverness around 0800 and during the day experienced a mix of quiet trails through woods and over hills and then the ghastly noise and spray from thundering traffic on the A9.
Rained non-stop but the skylarks continued to sing! Briefly but enjoyably accompanied by Hugh Campbell who warmly welcomed us into Evanton. Grim walk into Alness.
Photo opportunities were few and far between but delighted to cover the 22 miles in just over 7 hours.
