Bikepacking NW Scotland - Day 1 (1) - Achnahaird Beach to Kylesku
Forecast was for a sunny morning, windy all day and some afternoon rain. We got two of these...
Really windy overnight, tent felt like it was going to shake apart. Too windy to eat at camp so set off as soon as packed - fortunately straight into the wind... First few km were no fun but we then got some shelter, changed direction and found some water. Breakfast eventually had in a nice cove on the coast.
Lovely winding road along the coast with plenty of hills, but not too tough before a stop in Lochinver for toilets and a visit to the pie shop (too close to breakfast to east, but stocked up for lunch). The most excellent pie was consumed at Clackholl Beach, another nice wee place, before another lovely coastal road as far as Drumbeg. Much busier now with campers and motorbikes as part of the NC500 route. From Drumbeg things got quite a bit tougher. Some savage steep hills, a strong headwind with pellets of rain in it, not the most fun to be had. Also arrived at Kylesku to discover the restaurant both closed for the afternoon and booked out in the evening. Back up the hill to the rock cafe, where we just manged to make last food orders.

Bikepacking NW Scotland - Day 1 (2) - Kylesku to Scourie
With no dinner available around Kylesku it was quite an easy choice to push on to Scourie. Also had the benefit of a change in direction so the wind was now pushing us along nicely. Bit of a gloomy afternoon so didn't stop much and treated ourselves to a campsite and its excellent showers for the evening. Bumped into Dave Coustick in the restaurant.
