This was supposed to be my rest day but I decided to get a few more miles done to help give me a chance of staying on schedule! I stayed the night in the 'Station Hotel' in Portsoy and they gave me a packed lunch for today and helped with my accommodation costs so I am grateful to them. I took the coast path which clung to the edge. Great to have some proper coastal walking along with some steep ups and downs. Then I joined a quiet lane and cycle route to 'Whitehills' where I sat and ate my lunch in a snowstorm! Then onto Banff where I crossed the River Deveron and walked the last couple of miles into Macduff, an active fishing port and I found a room at the 'Knowes Hotel'. Having arrived late afternoon I also managed to grab a couple of hours of sleep before supper!
