Due to a booking falling apart in Lybster, I’ve arrived in Helmsdale one day early which has meant a day of rest.

Helmsdale

Helmsdale has a fairly interesting story. It was set up by Thomas Telford and his industrialist compatriots as a fishing fleet base.

More or less the whole village was planned and build, on spec according to the need of the herring industry in the 19th century.

Despite that, it’s a fairly pretty place.

Food

I stop at two places for food La Mirage and Bannockburn Inn. Because of it’s busyness, I assumed the food would be good in Mckkays.

It was bland and boring with big portions.

Bannockburn, I had steak with peppercorn sauce which you had to pay £1.75 for. Then I had a coconut bomb, which was also very nice and an Irish coffee which kept me awake the whole night.

Here’s some photo’s

  1. Is the journey back all down hill 🙂 glad you didn’t have a head wind..looks as f the weather is being brilliant for your cycling trip. Have you seen any heather? Helmsdale sounds like a lovely village…enjoy your rest day. An ‘Indian’ summer has arrived so looks as if you will have rather a pleasant cycle back to Preston 🙂
