I always love gong to Northern Scotland. Let face the facts here; is mighty chilly and very barren (I tend to go in October) but I think its that untouched feel that makes it so outstanding.
It is such a great British surf adventure Long roads through the bright orangey mores, changing into your suit in farm yards, seals as big as the cows, slate slabs, crumbling castles, huge flat open spaces, sea otters, gorgeous golden light....I could go on but you get the idea!
Maybe I’ve just been lucky with the swells but It never seems to disappoint! This year I nearly surfed a different spot every day, one of which has to be one of the longest left hand point break I’ve ever seen, with just 2 other guys (...and a fair few mega seals) out in the water! I was there for the UK Pro Surf tour event at Thurso, we were blessed with pumping waves for the finals day and I was absolutely stoaked to take the win!
