Today was mostly another long, tough day cycling right into a strong headwind. A beautiful (and wind-free) early morning’s ride along the remarkable Golden Road, though, which threads it way down the east coast of Harris through fishing villages.
After lunch, island-hopping in earnest through astounding landscapes of mountains, lochs, cobalt sea and custard beaches: a ferry to Berneray, then over the causeway to North Uist. Then a causeway to Grimsay, and another causeway to Benbecula, where I’m camping in the least windy spot available, which is very, very windy.
Some of the road signs I hadn’t seen before.
