14/07 Tongue to the Black Isles near Inverness

Tongue to Alahar one of the most beautiful ride I have ever done. The baron study hills the lochs mirroring the angry sky … I wish you were there it was heartstoppingly beautiful. The weather stayed with us for a while but it changed its mind not far from Lairg just at the point when I started to get a bit weary and tired and needed to stop. Not long and it was so heavy I started to shake my fist at the sky … nop it did not work. Penny and John behind me. And then like in the stories really, in the middle of nowhere this inn (crask inn) appeared with a velvet voiced, full smile and kindness landlady Kay. And the others arrived. The fire was on and the drinks were wonderful… And that’s one of the most important part which makes the journey ever so special the people we meet the lives we are connecting for a little while.
We were couchsurfing that night (people offering their extra room to say) on the Black Isles near Inverness. We took the ferry to Cromarty and than cycled to Jemmiville( got a bit confused with the direction but helped out and escorted to the right spot). Our host Liath was  waiting for us, what a lovely lovely fellow, unbelievably not just willing to share his house but prepared us a fantastic meal. We had a really lovely evening … and Jon had a nasty hangover this morning.
