True North

As a cyclist, I'd heard for years about the ride from Land's End, the southernmost point of Great Britain, to John O'Groats, the northernmost point. I took that as gospel - the longest ride on the mainland of the United Kingdom. Only one problem. John O'Groats is not the northernmost point; Dunnet Head is. So, off we went, from Inverness to Dunnet Head on the North Sea.

Ruined cottage on the roadside...

...but given the windows, probably not a crofter's cottage
