Day 31 – Skelbo Wood to Brora

What a day, at times today for some moments It seemed like I was in Barbados. This North East flank of Scotland is beautiful & full of pleasant suprises.

Road walking continues, and it is never easy, however today we walk the road for some 6 miles to the town or village called Golpsie.
