The Top of Scotland

Rupert and me after a long days riding

Been a few weeks again since i've blogged but just reached Edinburgh and have internet access again...hooray (though not much)! First of all I'd like to say a massive thankyou to Helpful Holidays in Devon for their fantastic £1000 donation to Ovacome. A donation like that really helps to boost my enthusiasm for the ride and makes it all seem worth while :0)

So for the last 2 weeks ive been cycling north from Ullapool on the North west coast, around Stoer Head and up to Cape Wrath, the latter of which is apparently the most isolated part of Britain. From here I cycled east along the North coast with pretty much fine weather the whole way. I signed the book at John O'Groats and had a couple of photos and then started the journey south through the historic town of Wick and many others to Inverness. Had a couple of days off with Elsie in Inverness which was fab!!

For the last 5 days ive been cycling east then south, out to fraserburgh, peterhead, Aberdeen, Dundee, St Andrews and into Edinburgh. Beautiful riding, sunny, flat with occasional headwind. Got some great shots of the lighthouses that ill publish online asap.

Cant believe I've nearly run out of credit on this BT openzone already! Ive been busy downloading podcasts to listen to on the long flat roads of the east coast that lay ahead

Ill update again soon.cheers
