The Sun Was Shinning At The Top Of Scotland! (Includes Video!)

Good evening all.

Sorry for the late post. I trust you have read the post I wrote up this morning at 4.30am before hitting the road? It’s been a long but great day driving through some of the UK and world’s best scenery. I covered 600 twisty, hilly miles (2,000 miles in the past 6 days) from Glasgow to Thurso on the north coast, right at the top of Scotland. Drove through breathtaking Glen Coe, along the banks of Loch Ness and up through the Highlands which still had patches of snow on them, south of Dalwhinnie in the central Highlands.

Though feeling quite chilly, the sun was shinning for much of the drive which took over 12 hours due to the nature of roads, slow moving vehicles and the copious sets of roadworks as well as a detour between Carrbridge and Aviemore due to a section of the A9 closed.

It certainly felt great to see the sun shinning, especially while looking across the Pentland Firth to the steep and shear drop cliffs of Dunnet Head and Orkney. The photos below are a few I took this morning on my journey.
