in the Northern Highlands
was my 10th Jawaday ride and my first in the Highlands of Northern
Scotland. Had to wait until after lunch when the roads had dried out
and left Spinningdale to travel part of the circular Moray Tourist
route. I drove west on the A949 alongside the north side of the
Dornoch Firth, stopped at St Demhams Cross for a quick bit of local
history, its a 9th century Pictish Stone with a Celtic Cross carved
on it, and then back on the road and onto the village of Bonar
Bridge for a photo.
a car in sight! (They were all indoors watching the tennis final). Over the
bridge, first one built by Thomas Telford, now on its third version,
riding into Ardgay and along the A836 on the south side of the
Dornoch Firth. At Struie Hill, by the snow gates, is one of the few
remaining original AA breakdown telephone boxes once seen all over
the UK, only stopped for a photo, bike running fine.
onward through Edderton where I was passed by Dutch members of a
Porsche car club also on a run out with 20 of the machines. Turned
back north onto the A9 and Dornoch
stopped for another photo.
back onto the A949 and west through Clashmore and back to
1962 CZ 175 enjoyed the run of 27 miles which took about 1.5 hours with stops, great scenery and great fun especially on the
empty roads with wide bends, ideal for bike riding!
