Being the seafood capital of Scotland we were encouraged to try the seafood, and were recommended a particular fish ...

    ... we were back in the Chelsea tractor and off to seek out more stunning landscapes. Another non-main road took us some 20 miles round a Loch, whilst not so breath taking as the one earlier on, we met Highland cattle with some funky comb-overs, and then we almost bumped into Errol.
