Managed to get to my hotel booking.

Here’s a couple of pictures I took along the way.

The inventor of modern economics has a statue here on the Golden Mile.

He said – “Virtue is more to be feared than vice, because its excesses are not subject to the regulation of conscience.” That make any sense? No? Well never mind, a lot of what he said did.

Stopped in Deacon Brodies Tavern, gave some money to a tramp then moved on down to the station which took me to Inverness.

City Hostel

Didn’t fancy a dorm on my first night. Also didn’t want to pay over the odds.

Staff are friendly. Did a review of it on Google, it’s central.

Had a kebab after I got in and hit the sack.

I’ve been told John O’Groats is, to paraphrase ‘nothing special’ but I’d like to look around and make that judgement for myself.
