Over the hills to Lochinver

A travel blog entry by abercromby56


It's raining today (wot??? In Scotland???) so time to catch up on a bit of blogging....

Yesterday we went over the winding, mainly single-track road to Lochinver on the wildly beautiful west coast, natural habitat of those nasty minuscule midges, without which this part of Scotland would no doubt be thronging with folk. ...

... We were six miles away, having already walked 22 and it was just gone 6pm. Needless to say we yomped and made it with ten minutes to spare. Of course the hotel bar was deserted and the food decidedly average. We were very tired, sweaty and with an unhelpful collection of blisters. This morning we have found a friendly cafe "Whistlestop" and have restored our spirits with a slow start, good breakfast and a latte.... oh and today's newspaper to read. Sadly we now have 20 miles to ...

The whole day we have followed the Oykel river. A popular river for fly fishers judging by the numbers we saw along the riverbank and as we have had confirmed this evening. This hotel is owned by a syndicate of fishers. Apparently rescued from a long decline. We have seen too ...

... Single Malt. The barley is grown right there on the Black Isle, water is from the local White Burn, and the barley is malted on site. What's not to love?

Next stop, Rogie Falls on the Black Water River in Torrachilty Forest. This is the starting point for a number or hiking trails. We enjoyed the dark rushing water and the bridge overlook...only 5 people allowed on at once :)

We went farther down ...
