Cycling day 42: Stonehaven to Carnoustie

Much of today was spent battling a headwind. I suspect this will be the case for many of the days following the coast now. I guess it helps make it a bit harder in the absence of any substantial hills.

BagpipersWhen I reached Montrose I saw a parade of bagpipers followed by the town’s beauty queen and princesses. Shortly afterwards, though behind a fence that I couldn’t see over, I encountered the venue of Montrose’s Highland Games, so I suspect that this is where they were heading. There were certainly lots of local people flocking there.

Bus stop aheadA few miles out from today’s destination of Carnoustie the cycle route follows beside the A92. I saw a sign pointing out the obvious here. Judge for yourself.
