It gave me great pleasure to divert my course to this gate, lift the latch, step through, and then close it diligently behind me. Scourie, Sutherland, Scotland.

I’ve always found these deer warning signs evocative of the wild out there, but this one also has barely visible magical stars in the white background that I only just noticed while editing the photo. Road to Laxford Bay, Sutherland, Scotland.

You know it’s going to be a good walk when the path has a warning!
I’m alright thanks.
First mention of John 0’ Groats on a Road sign. I must be North!
My pot has something fresh in it tonight, delicious and aromatic fennel from Angus’s garden that he gave me in the morning.
The Perimeter is a labour of love: it’s taken 454 days of walking, hundreds of hours of planning and thousands of hours of editing. If you have the means, I’d appreciate your support by buying a print or contributing so I can continue to share the project with you.
Looks like a lonely place to live in that last video!
Yes I found the the whole of Ardmore bleak – but it might well have beee the weather or that I was hungry!
There’s a lot of bleak countryside around these northern areas – life must have been tough for folk there.
A shame that tourist authorities want to copy the American Route 66 and encourage more driving and screaming motorbikes in this remote area.They can’t even claim it brings much money into the remote communities since motor vehicles cover vast distances and will buy most of their supplies at the bigger end to end centres but those walking or cycling can’t cover those distances and will buy things locally.But motorists come first….as always!
NC500 has led to some ridiculously inflated B&B prices. In peak season I saw shabby rooms advertised for £200 that were barely worth £50.
