Day 3: Achmelvich to Ullapool

Headwinds not so bad today, and some awesome, awesome scenery on remote back roads.

Yesterday was tough so I've had an easy day today, with the prospect of fish and chips for dinner and a pint in the pub overlooking the harbour. Ullapool is a harbour town, so it's a great place for fish - the good road access means there are frequent lorry deliveries.

Ferry to Stornoway tomorrow.

Miles today: 38
Miles since Cape Wrath: 108


  1. Scenery looks great! Hope you enjoyed some fine fish: maybe some Cornish Sardines, Dover sole or air-freighted tuna?

  2. Yes, awesome scenery - and the roads shown in your photos are lovely and flat.

    I'm just getting my bike serviced in preparation for joining you next week...
