After Latheron, I passed some of the most impressive cliffs that I’ve seen – towering overhangs with many waterfalls, arches and huge caves.
Feeling pretty tired after paddling against the tide for much of the day, I stopped on a beach between Helmsdale and Brora.
The forecast didn’t took great for a big crossing (not too bad either), so I took a couple of days off to rest. A very isolated beach – I didn’t see anyone else the whole time I was there.
Yesterday, I paddled into Brora to stock up on food (I’d run out again), had a massive lunch then paddled out to Tarbet Ness. By the time I arrived there, a breeze had picked up, so I decided to carry on downwind towards Lossiemouth.
I stopped at Classach Cove just as the light was fading (the days are getting shorter) – another lovely spot with a cave that you can walk through to reach an adjacent beach.
