I started out from ‘Kinlochbervie Hotel’ who donated money AND my packed lunch. Thank you so much. I retraced my steps along the B801 and then along the A838. I received a few donations from drivers as I wandered through classic scenery with the summit of ‘Foinaven / Foinne Bhein’ to the south-west. I had the full load on my back today and reminded myself how fortunate I have been to find willing supporters to carry the bulk of my kit to my next destination. It makes such a difference! I saw another golden eagle crossing at great height from one ridgeline to another and went directly overhead. I met a keeper who works on the estate through which the River Dionard flows. He said they caught 70 salmon in the previous few days. The river looked low but there were some lovely pools. By the time I staggered into Durness I was absolutely exhausted. I found a very nice B&B called ‘Aiden House’ and after a refreshing shower I went down to the ‘Mackay Rooms’ restaurant where Pip and I plan to stay in a few days time. It is a lovely place and serves delicious food.
