Today was the second leg from Camusnagaul to Ullapool.

Another good days riding with only a few spots of rain. The climb out of Dundonnell on the road of desolation certainly tested the legs with over five miles of continuous climbing. But the views down loch broom while enjoying a well earned snack bar made it worth while, as did the long descent down the Corrieshalloch Gorge. Note: for those expecting to be able to take a comfort stop at the toilets by Braemer Junction, they have been closed with a helpful notice saying there are toilets at Ullapool a mere 12 miles away!
We made a quick stop off at the woodturning centre in Lael, then finishing the ride along an undulating road by the side of Loch Broom.
All in all a good days riding, legs feel good, ready for the challenge of a longer days ride tomorrow, on territory we are far less familiar with.
Report from cyclemeter, which did play up slightly! We actually did 29miles.
