Charity Cycle to John O'Groats

Scott and Charles stayed overnight at The Pierhouse en route to John O'Groats. The guys started at Lands End and plan to cycle the 1010 miles in 14 days.

Charles and Scott took a well earned overnight rest at The Pierhouse. It's day 11 of a 14 day cycle ride from Lands End to John O'Groats. They are raising money for the British Heart Foundation, a charity close to their hearts they say.

We wish them well in the final few days of their cycle challenge. Donations can be made to their Just Giving page and you can follow their Blog here. This is what they said about last night's stay at The Pierhouse:

"We headed onto Benderloch towards Port Appin along some single track lanes. The views to Mull were quite breath taking with impressive views to the island of Lismore.

The small village of Appin has a narrow jetty which many sail boats head for to frequent the amazing Hotel and restaurant called the Pier House Hotel renown for its fine fish cuisine. We had the mussels and Pierhouse platter which was a real treat. The locals and visitors were very friendly and the owner made us quite at home with tales of other travellers that had passed through raising money for charity."
