Stopped at a place called Tain, just off the A9. Got soaked for the first hour and the road was really busy. Took a detour, left, through Alness. This was a good idea. When we rejoined the A9 it was better weather and the road seemed quieter and there was a walk/cycle lane to use along the main road. Now we have taken another detour on the right of the A9. Found a bike shop for some well needed oil and found the Sunflowers Too Coffee Shop.
Everything in it is linked to sunflowers.
