Outer Hebrides tour part 4

We left our campsite and headed a bit further South to the Loch Erisort Hotel, a warm inviting sight after our stormy camp, as we booked in I looked around and saw a similarly confused Ian Coull and family, Ian is our treasurer for the Tay Valley NOC and I used to live in the same village, however seeing that his wife Anne's mother is from this area it probably wasn't that much of a coincidence.
 The hotel was nice with friendly staff and recommended if you are in the area. Monday we headed to Stornoway to the ferry back to Ullapool and then a bit further North to visit Kenny and Sheila at the Culag Hotel in Lochinver, old friends who used to go to bike rallies at one point in a bike and double adult sidecar, fridge strapped between the two, two kids and a huge dog in the chair and Sheila on the back. Kenny gave Fiona some tips on how to pilot the sidecar but remembering a particularly spirited ride across Bute followinh him in the chair I wasn't sure if that was a great idea.
If you're in the North of Scotland, a great place to stay the night,great roads and a huge whisky selection (just don't mix the two)
A trip further South to Poolewe with some nice weather for a change and now a rest day before the Applecross madness. Some flower pictures to show my tree hugging side and to brighten up the otherwise dull pictures!

  1. Aye Fi and Gino,
    Been following the tour and enjoying the images. Applecross this weekend looks "Hellish", you might think you are in a dingy on the Minch, if you haven't something more substantial booked. You could always turn the 'chair' into a canoe! ;¬)
    Go canny, Myreside

  2. Wisnae as bad as it was forecast, still no Summer yet
