Nearly out of petrol!

We stayed last night in Tain and had curry for tea, which was ok. I was very tired. We got up early and we south to Loch Ness TM. My God! Could there be more tacki tourist stuff in one small location? I got a nessie t-shirt. We then went to Urquart castle. Personally it was ruined by the amount of people there. It was unbelievable bad. We went back north through yukkie Inverness and stopped at the Black Isle brewery. How they got a food production licence I don’t know, but Neil recons the beer is good.
The rest of the day was spent driving to John O’Groats. We saw some, what looked like, oil rigs being made or serviced, we also went to a really really cool castle/home called Dunrobin.
We very nearly ran out of petrol, we filled up 43L, we recon it must have been a 45L tank as the light was on for about 30 miles. We made, but it was a tad stressful.
John O’Gorats, what a hole! Dinner at the pub was OK. We go drunk with the Glaswegian journalist and some Germans. Yum, cider.
