Day 11 - Clashnessie to Durness

Friday 10th June
Rather than fight the midges again at breakfast we packed up and moved on to a viewpoint on the headland above Drumbeg. After a relatively midge free breakfast we continued on re-joining the main road near Kylescu.

We stopped for a break to take Button for a walk at Scourie and were pleased to find a community bird hide with lots of local natural history information. The hide is obviously much used by the local primary school as a resource with drawings and writings by the children on the walls.

The road now headed north east past Arkle and Foinaven (not the horses!).The cloud was down so we were unable to see the tops of the mountains. We soon dropped down to the village of Durness where our camp site, Sango Sands, was located. We took Button for her evening walk then had a meal at the pub next to the site.
