Day 17 – Tain to Tongue

photoA nice cool start greeted us today as we pedalled through the Monros. Our route took us along the shores of Dornoch Firth, Loch’s Shin, Naver, Loyal and Craggie and onto the Kyle of Tongue. Enjoying a tailwind we were able to cover ground very quickly. We also experienced one of the most scenic days of the tour, which was totally stunning.  In fact, we had to remember to keep our eyes on the tarmac as we became absorbed in the beauty of the landscape.  Upon reaching Tongue a few of us continued over the causeway and made a short ascent which offered far reaching views of Rabbit Island.  Having been so fortunate with the weather we have been counting our blessings – along with miles – which now total 969!
