It's been a day of covering ground but once north of Perth said ground has been thoroughly spectacular. The sun's out, the heather's in bloom, and it all makes already gobsmaking landscapes quite something.

We've made it as far as the coordinates shown near to Eilean Donan castle and are ready to strike for Skye first thing in the morning; well after a late breakfast anyway. Views from here are spectacular, but then it is a designated viewpoint. There's no one here and the roads to it are not of the kind that sensible people would bring an expensive motorhome; so it looks like a winner for kipping.

Some of today's 'main' roads have been a bit skinny and it came as something of a surprise to meet three monster artics as part of a well policed convoy carrying wind turbine blades. The drivers were earning their keep, for sure.
