One good thing we did today was spot a notice in the "Spar" A dial-a-ride bus service could, and as I found out, would, pick me up & take me to Golspie.
That's how I met Hughie. Instead of having to wait for the City Link bus heading northwards from Dornoch at 12.45, he could pick me up right outside the bungalow at 9.30.
Dropping me off at the spot where Hilary & I had compromised on I walked on into Brora happy in the knowledge that Hughie would pick me up tomorrow, same time, different place, & take me there, outside of his usual catchment area, and wanting to make a donation!
What can I say about today's walk? After a brief spell on Golspie's seafront it was a slog on the A9. I could have followed the beach further passed "Dunrobin Castle" created by the Earldom of Sutherland in 1235. but...I am a female walker on my own & when looking ahead you see two young men (without dogs) apparently chasing each other, you make the decision to stick to the road.
I managed to catch the lunchtime City Link bus back to Dornoch, where I spent the afternoon sunbathing on the beach. What a difference a day makes!
