DUNNET HEAD : 1093Km Paddled and we round Britain's most Northerly Point

An important milestone was reached today as we kayaked around Dunnet Head Britain's most northerly point. It seemed fitting somehow to be rounding it in fog and to the sound of fog horns blowing in Pentland Firth. An area to be treated with respect due to significant tide races, ever changing sea and weather conditions. We rounded at 10.30 as the westerly flow began and had a approximate three knot assistance from the tide in good sea conditions and a gentle force 3-4 wind on our backs. It was a wonderful feeling to see the imposing cliffs appearing from the mist and being joined for the journey with grey seals, fulmar, razorbills, guillemots and puffins.

Its been quite a journey and we now continue along the roof of Britain to Cape Wrath then onwards down the west coast to Gretna.
