Yes it's lovely very remote & there's not much there apart from a few buildings, a signpost cafe & shop!
I cycled from there aiming not for landsend but just home but unfortunately got knocked off my bike around tyndrum and not been in a bike since. Which is why it's one of my challenges for when the weathers a bit better ..

K for kinross just up the road...scenic ruined castle which you can only get to by boat!!!

Next person to play - somewhere beginning with B
