The rest of the photos taken during my cycle tour of the North West Highlands of Scotland. Basically a large circle north from Inverness to Thurso and the northern coast of the mainland, west to Durness, south to Assynt and the Kyle of Lochalsh, east to the Great Glen and north back to Inverness with occasionally a little help from the train. *

I got the train to Inverness and before turning in for the night at Inverness Youth Hostel, I had a little cycle out to the Beauly Firth.
Unfortunately on arriving back I found a rip in my tyre so before my journey could start the next day a quick visit to a cycle shop for a new tyre was necessary knowing that for much of my journey there wouldn't be any more cycle shops. *

The it was across the Firth to the Black Isle and a cycle out mainly on little roads to Cromarty. En route I found this cute little post office. In the background a village with the wonderful name of Jemimaville, cute in itself *

The sign on the Post Office reads Poyntsfield but the sign on the road and the map says Jemimaville with Poyntsfield acroos the fields so I'm confused!
I still love the name Jemimaville though. *

I liked these furrows behind the Post Office *

I cycled along the Cromarty Firth to Cromarty only to find the ferry wasn't running, so back I had to go, the long way round and what was worse, into the wind. *

I think these were just rocks covered in seaweed but they seemed a bit incongruous in the mud flats *

looking north towards the hills and the route over the tops. However, by the time I got around Cromarty Firth to Alness it was 5pm so I settled for a bag of chips and a drink sat at the train station to get the train to my stop for the night... *

It seems to be a rule for youth hostels to be perched high up, just at the end of your journey when you're exhasted and your panniers seem heavier and heavier - and this was no exception with what seemed like a 1 in 4 up to its door *
