A 2 day run which is being organised by Charles and Gillian and promises some fine driving!

This run does include an overnight stay at the Tongue Hotel

10.00am : depart DFS Car park Inverness

10.45am: meet Chuck & Gill and Bobby & Debbie at Ken’s Garage Kildary

After this we don’t really have a time-table as such but next stop is La Mirage for Bacon Rolls or Scones with Jam & Cream or both if you are really hungry. (we have booked a table for 11 here at 11.45am)

After this stop we will take a leisurely drive up the East Coast stopping at Whaligoe Steps (please bring stout footwear if you wish to descend the steps – you will also need them on Sunday), then proceeding on to John O’Groats and then Dunnet Head before a fuel stop in Thurso and making our way to our final destination of the day The Tongue Hotel.


10.00am: depart Tongue hotel

Again we have no fixed timetable but our first stop (apart from photo opportunities) will be Smoo Cave – this is where your stout footwear will be required again – not too onerous a walk and for those with an adventurous streak a boat trip into the heart of the cave – may be an idea to have a waterproof jacket for this one. (I think it will cost £4 per person for the boat trip)

After Smoo Cave we will proceed to Cocoa Mountain Cafe and Chocolate Shop in Durness for some refreshments.

From Durness we will then head south taking in various photo stops, (there are many as the scenery is spectacular but we won’t stop at them all) on the way to Kylesku where we will have a toilet stop. After this stop we will head for Ullapool where can spend some time looking in the shops before getting chips (apparently it is against the law to go to Ullapool and not have chips from the “Award Winning Chip Shop!!!!)

Once we have all finished shopping and eating we will begin our journey home, well to the Auction Mart car park in Dingwall where the party will separate and then we will all head home.
