Our adventure of last weekend took us, and hubby’s classic Mark 2 Jaguar, (as featured in Murder, Now and Then) to the wilds of the far north of the Scottish Highlands, a distance of 174 miles of single track roads with passing places and breath-taking views.
Over 60 cars waited near Dornoch Jail for the off! Sadly, the weather was wet at the start but it did not dampen our enthusiasm.
Thirty two cars headed one way around a figure of eight and the same the other way with the hopes that we would all meet at the middle for lunch and a group photo at Smoo Caves near Durness.
In the afternoon the weather brightened somewhat and we were treated to equally stunning vistas before pausing for tea and cakes at the lovely Altnaharra Hotel.
Then it was the last leg back to Dornoch.
I’m not sure how much was raised by the local Rotary Club for the RNLI and other good causes, but a great time was had by all.
Unfortunately for our Jag, by the time we had completed the 540 mile round trip back to Kinghorn we could smell petrol and realised that we had a petrol leak. The following morning the dear car had to be towed away 😦
Looking on the bright side we got home safely and the sun was shining once more!
