Day 12 was our shortest day at a mere 56 miles to Helmsdale.
We headed north on the A9 from Dingwall after a cracking breakfast at our little BnB.
Scenery wise there was nothing major that stands out. Obviously great mountain ranges that we were pretty glad we were going round rather than over.
We stopped at a little cafe half way and stocked up warm chocolate fudge cake with ice cream to keep us going for the rest of the trip.
I’m arrival in Helmsdale we opted for the only restaurant in town – fish and chips again. We were well and truly beaten this time though – fish suppers in Scotland come with two fish! My advice; order a small fish if you’re up here.
