Room smaller than last night (well the twin room is anyway).
Clean and tidy but it was a long trek to the room with all our gear. No heating on when we got here (just when we needed to dry out ), but soon put it onto 'stun ' mode and soon warmed up.

Carrying on Rhianwyn got back in the car, which John had been skilfully driving through the congested ...

As we were going to have an early start the next day, we decided to have a quick dinner on the wharf. We came across a great seafood hut that was selling their catch of the day, both fresh and cooked. We had the mussels cooked in garlic, shallots and white wine which was delicious. A great way to end our time in Scotland's seafood ...
