Last week’s day off for Mr B and I involved a drive out west, as the weather forecast was for sun all day (and let’s face it, summer this year has been deficient of vitamin D!) so we headed out for an all day road trip.
We arrived in time for lunch at the Waterfront Café in Lochcarron (involving big and tasty local prawns) and of course some homemade cake, before walking along the village shore.
Lochcarron, as is the case with many other villages on the west coast, is so picturesque with its view of the loch from colourful cottages.
There’s also some defensive locals on the lookout for intruders (but as you can see, Bartie really wasn’t put off!)
Then we drove (via a viewpoint at South Strome) along to Plockton, which may just be my new favourite place ever, with palm trees lining a bay which has sailing boats, castles and hills all in view!
We ended our day over in Broadford, Isle of Skye with a fish supper (though our romantic idea of enjoying a blue skied view was thwarted by the midges, and we ate it in the car!)
