Another hard and fast walk to Helmsdale along the A9. Great views down to the sea as described by my wonderful guide Ingrid.
The John O’Groats trail was impassable in many places which forced us onto the road and is testament to the absence of any investment by the Scottish Government, despite the heroic efforts of some volunteers. Nicola Sturgeon – kindly get your act together.
Looking forward to the final 3 days with men of 51 Infantry Brigade and HQ Scotland (Sterling).
