Day 11: Evanton to Thurso – approx. 106 miles

Day 11 - Brora to Thurso

Longest ride of the tour today – a beast of a day! The revised accommodation stops have created an epic ride today with some significant height to be gained and lost. We start by passing along the Dornoch Firth sadly avoiding the Glenmorangie distillery – sadly I suspect there wouldn’t be time for a distillery tour even if we managed to go past it. The original route took us past the distillery, up the coast past Dunrobin Castle and up to Brora. We now head up inland to Loch Shin, past the Crask Inn (the only thing of note in miles!), Altnaharra and Loch Naver, Bettyhill, Dounrey and Thurso. It’s a long ride…

We head North properly today with longer mileage and some hefty climbing.  There is no video on YouTube which does not show it raining! Going to be mixed feelings as its the penultimate day.
