NC 500 Day 6+7 The Road to Gairloch

The road to Gairloch can be fraught with danger. Especially if you don’t keep to the path. We decided to visit the Corrieshalloch Gorge. “The thundering River Dorma plunges 100ft down through the most impressive slot-gorge in Britain.” Run by the National Trust for Scotland it’s free to visit😁 As far as drops go it was pretty impressive but the Princess wasn’t overly happy at the end of the viewing point 😂

After the gorge it was time to hit the road to the hotel. I was desperate for a run and to get out of the mountain clouds/mist or as I had been informed ‘rain!’

The hotel was a welcome relief as was the sunshine and the beautiful bay. Looking forward to 2 whole days of this.

We walked up to a waterfall, which we couldn’t see because of the flora 🤔 and it rained, I thought we’d climbed into the clouds again but I was corrected 😂 It was interesting to see a tractor and lorry being swallowed by nature too.

Covid is still around even up here. We have to wear masks in the presence of other humans. It feels wrong putting a mask on before I enter a shop especially without a shotgun 😂 At last I got a decent run in, without getting soaked. Hope you’re all safe and well 😘

  1. Nice, next time DON’T threaten to push the Princess over the railing. Here in Florida, we are in the midst of a covid resurgence and folks still refuse to mask at my local grocery store. An old hillbilly friend of mine had a plate attached to the front of his pickup….”CAN’T FIX STUPID”.

    • 😂😂 I did see a sign that said, “Do not throw anything over the edge” Love that plate, it reminds me of a Canadian bloke I worked with on site, he had some great sayings 😉

      Good for them. If masks actually worked, the “covid” would have been “stopped” back in March 2020.

      You are VERY lucky to have a non-tyrant governor instead of a stark, raving mad Newsome or, worse, a groping Cuomo. Your economy thrives. I’m stuck under another out of touch tyrant.

    Hi Charlie,
    we drove the NC500 four years ago on our way to the Orkneys. We took our time and enjoyed it very much. We had perfect weather and went hiking quite often and stayed at beautiful places several days.
    Thanks for sharing your pictures. You can have a look at our post about this trip

  4. I think you have got the Scottish bug – not Covid, but a deep love of the country. Me too!
