We often have to leave our place of rest by ten in the morning. Some days we can’t check into the next place until three or four in the afternoon. We’ve had a few days when the driving distance left us time to explore. This was about an hour’s hike down the hill to the broch and back up the hill to the car. It seems to us that all the interesting places to hike are always uphill (and into the wind) on the way back.
