Dornoch, Golspie and Brora

The journey north saw the beginning of NC500 signs (in two directions!) and our first stop for lunch at Dornoch and “Milk and Honey” for very nice sandwiches and soups (courgette and potato, Thai carrot). Dornoch holds links to Anne’s family in the Cathedral and was a very interesting place to explore with side streets and no conventional linear structure like many towns. It looked pretty affluent…?

Beyond Dornoch and we arrived at Golspie and Big Burn Falls, a short trek up a wooded valley and across wooden bridges of variable strength…

…but the falls were nice and would be very impressive through the seasons

Finally arrived at Brora campsite which was relatively small but just 100yrds (across a golf course) to a fantastic beach stretching a mile or so with possibly 4 other people there. However later I realised 2 of them were probably a broken groyne

Finally supper provided by Sids Spice of Brora, chicken passanda and lamb tikka biryani. Happy days in the van tonight…
