We will begin our mini-travelogue at the junction with Cornquoy Road, down by the shore and adjacent to the old kirk.
At this time of year, before the grass has begun to dominate the verges, Dandelion and Lesser Celandine provide some vibrant colour, and I guess also pollen and nectar for early insects.
But perhaps the most impressive flora of the moment is Marsh Marigold, which abounds in the ditch bottoms, as this part of the lane has plenty of flowing water.
And all that water is emanating from springs in this small paddock, 'teeve', 'tave' or 'tieve' being the dialect word for a well.
The paddock itself is usually home to a few sheep, but at the moment contains just one ram who, to my consternation, was a bit of a photo-bomber.
The final stretch of the road is much drier, with no obvious ditches, so our eyes tend to stray to the fields on either side, on the look out for Brown Hares hunkering down amongst the tussocks of grass. None today sadly.
Target: Tieve Road
Location: begins HY511006, ends HY515012
Distance from Tense Towers (as the dragon flies): 1.45km (maximum)

Mission accomplished: Yes
Comments: I seriously mis-calculated my ability to ignore the constant sound of running water...
