I was determined to make it to Dunbeath before Dave & Lynne picked me up, but the bus was late leaving town & they'd made good time from Scarborough. At least I'd tackled the hair-pin steep decline/incline that was Berriedale before they picked me up.
Back in Dornoch, before making a decision on the property purchase, I needed to check out the deciding factor...the local. Tonight was "Bingo Night" not very exciting, & neither was the "Dornoch Inn" It was to late to try the posh pubs, we had to plan tomorrow's route. Desperate to get off the A9, I was peering over the "disused railway line as a possibility.
