In the city. Can you walk in the city? I am a country walker. Or not? Is it the same? The country walking. And the city walking. Find the country. The Pentlands. Are they compensating? For what? See the city. From above. Ok. Onwards. And upwards. Castlelaw. Hillfort. Big hole. What were they storing? Grain. Beer? Rubbish today. Upwards round, bleak, lock in distance. Army stuff. Firing range. Danger sign. Ignore. Up. Round. Top. Mist. Down. Red danger sign, sheep, shooting. Oh no. Compass? Where is it? F…! Fence. Jump. Down. Lost. I thought I was in the city? See path. Car. Thanks God.

On the John O’Groats Way
15 Oct, 2021
In September I walked the John o' Groats Way from Dornoch to Berriedale along the east coast of Sutherland. Framed by WW2 remnants and remainders of the Highland clearances, the route alternates between sandy beaches and hard-core scrambles on rough coastal cliffs. No other walkers en route apart from occasional dog walkers near the villages. Seals however are steady company as well as occasional dolphins. 65km, 4 days leisurely.
