I wasn’t feeling great on Friday morning, so despite the sunshine, I decided not to go out for a ride. Instead I started doing research on places to stay.
I had got all the way up to Thurso with my research, when I discovered that most places there were already booked up, so I went ahead and got myself a bed for the night there and then, rather than risk missing out. Once I had done that, I thought that I might as well get the rest of the nights booked up as well.
I got all the booking done before I had to go to work in the afternoon. All the B&Bs took the booking on trust, not requiring a deposit. I have paid for the youth hostels in advance, and have details of all the accommodation in a spreadsheet for easy reference. 🙂
