Highland Schools Tour Kicks Off!

Day 0 - Aberdeen to Kinlochbervie
Distance travelled= 196.8 miles = 316.7 km

We arrived in Kinlochbervie late this afternoon after a long trip up from Aberdeen and some precarious roads!

First stop - we checked out the High School. It looks great with a distinctive roof! :-)

We're staying at the Kinlochbervie Hotel where we're sitting right now, writing this and making some last minute tweaks (eek!) to our lecture.

On the trip up we noted a few examples of renewable energy in action and sensing technologies. This will link in nicely with our lecture tomorrow - giving it a local slant.

Something else we noticed whilst travelling on the local roads and using the vast amounts of passing places was how incredibly friendly all the locals are! Everyone seems very smiley... A good sign for tomorrow!

On arrival today we visited the nearby Smoo Cave. Highly recommend this - v. dramatic!

After dinner tonight we're all 'fished out'.
