Wibble had a bit of an ME blip on the ferry and slept through most of it, while I listened to podcasts, did gift shopping, ate expensive cheese and crackers, and looked at navy ships through my telescope.
Back on the mainland we drove up to Durness through fabulous mountain scenery, via a long scenic coastal diversion. We popped in to have a look at Achmelvich Beach YH as we went past. It looked like a pretty enough place if white sandy shell beaches are your thing... ;)
We were both pretty tired by the time we checked into the Lazy Crofter hostel. Our room had a two bed bunk in it that took up about 75% of the floor space, so not much room left for our luggage! :) It was a clean, modern, tidy place in a small village with a beach on the north coast.
