Two weeks in Sutherland – a photographic diary

by backpackingbongos

In June 2007 I took myself in our battered old Rover for a solo two week tour of the far north of Scotland.  I mostly stayed in campsites fitting in day walks around fairly wet weather.  I did manage a two day backpack around the Sandwood bay area but that will be the subject of another post in the future.  Rather than bore you with what I did, here is a photographic record of the trip.
