Firstly a BIG thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged us along the way and donated to our chosen charities.

We have stayed at 31 varied accommodations from attic room B&B’s in private houses to large chain hotels (anywhere we could get a good deal!). Every single one of them has been extremely friendly and helpful and provided safe storage for Daisy.

We can’t believe how lucky we have been with the weather, only 1 completely wet day and 3 days which were a bit iffy and wet weather gear was on for a short while.

Our bodies have held up really well, a few little niggles in the first week, sorted with cream and tubigrips and then we were physically fine.

Daisy has performed excellently, just a few technical hitches….

Broken rear pannier fixing bolt -Repaired with 2 jubilee clips.

Crank worked loose – Tightened at bike shop.

Replaced worn out brake pads with spares on board.

One stretched chain replaced.

One chain breakage – Repaired with spare links on board.

2 punctures- Repaired on the roadside.

All in all this has been an amazing experience for us in an amazing country and we have enjoyed every second of it! We have enjoyed writing the blogs and hope they have given you an insight into our adventure.

We are now expecting the withdrawal symptoms!

Would we do it again?????????

Today we walked 2 miles further on than the John o’Groats signpost to Duncansby Head which is actually the furthest point from Land’s End.

Who knew John o’Groats had such a lovely beach? Not us!
