Dingwall to Rosemarkie

This is night No.19/2019 living in my caravan. Now pitched at Rosemarkie C&CC Site on the Black Isle.

Got up around 0600 and took the dogs for a blast up the canal side, and after breakfast (being a moving day) I was keen to get the dogs a good stretch before hitting the road.

Headed into Strathpeffer, then into Blackmuir Wood. In the wood, we followed a steep track up Bealach Bhrathan. It was a fine little hill.

Great views over Loch Ussie.

 We followed the ridge line along towards Cnoc Mor, before heading back down a steep path to the forest and on towards Strathpeffer.

It's only a short 20 miles or so between Dingwall and Rosemarkie. We arrived early, so parked up above the beach, took the dogs a walk, then had some lunch before checking in at 1300.

Can't complain, this is the first real rain I've seen for a week. It's only forecast for this afternoon. Note, I've been pitched opposite a nice 320GT! The staff here pick your pitch, unlike the C&MC.

The tide was in, and the sea high, so took the dogs along Fairy Glen, a RSPB Reserve leading from the village of Rosemarkie.

Quite a picturesque little walk.

Leads up to a fine waterfall. I didn't continue up past this one to the upper fall. There were a group of middle aged American tourists ahead, and they were struggling up the narrow walkway. Had a chat with a nice American lady, who was very interested in the dogs. I don't think she had ever heard of a 'Cocker Spaniel'!!
