The North Coast 500 has been getting a great response in the media and with a high chance of seeing the northern lights we headed towards Durness. We pitched in the dark but were greeted with stunning stars and the lights dancing. This was the first time I had seen the green with my eye rather than the camera.
Our first night was good until the early hours of the morning when it became extremely cold and the small rock under the tent proved not to be the pillow of choice. My morning wander before sunrise was bitter but provided stunning colours and some scrambling up rocks. Thankfully it all adds to the experience of star filled nights, open fires and cider.
