Urquhart to Dornoch

This is night No.48/2019 living in my caravan. Now pitched at Davochfin Farm, a CL near Dornoch.

Had an excellent stay at 'The Bungalow' near Urquhart. It is a great location for breaking the trip further north and offers some great walking in it's own backyard. The coast is only a short distance away, and being Moray, this is 'big forest' country.

After getting a clean up and feeding the dogs, we took the 5 min drive to Loch na Bo. It is a lovely circular walk amongst mature trees and a number of lochs.

 It is a very well kept area and has a few way marked routes. The one we followed took around an hour. Been here before, but it's definitely a favourite.

The weather was stunning as we packed and headed away about 1100 for the 2 hour drive. I had only booked the site this morning, but it's one of my favourite CL's. Probably the best walking from a site I've even experienced. A gate from next to my van leads to Camore Wood, and another track leads from here directly to the shores of the Dornoch Firth, cross the minor road then it's all off lead.

Cracking weather. There are another 3 vans here. No motorhomes, which may be due to the rather tight farm track up to the field above the farm.

Took the dogs for a blast around the forest.

The weather was fine and warm.

I noticed work going on here last time I visited. The FC seem to have flooded this area to create a mix of bog and dead trees?

Later in the afternoon, we headed the short 5 mile journey into Tain to visit Asda. It is my birthday after all, and a few luxuries are in order!! On the return to the farm, stopped after turning of the Dornoch Bridge to give the dogs a walk. A rather fine track leading down to the firth. I noticed it was marked as 'The John O Groats Way'.

Great views across the water to Tain and the Glenmorangie distillery.

And away in the distance to the north, I could make out the Duke of Sutherland Monument on Ben Bhraggie above Golspie.

Here for a couple of night, and fingers crossed the weather stays fine.
