Surprisingly I slept fitfully in my beautiful room, as I was so over-tired and drained from yesterday’s little amble. This morning I didn’t get way until 10.30 am because I was trying to sort out whether anyone in the village could take my kit bag (to lighten my load). There wasn’t! The hotel folk were lovely and tried all the options, but to no avail. They were so generous at ‘The Summer Isles Hotel’ and as I said, they didn’t charge me a penny. I walked along minor roads through some of the most stunning scenery yet: mountains as a backdrop, lochs, sea bays and coves. My feet are a bit sore today and so I strapped them for comfort and took two pain killers this afternoon! Then with 5 miles to go to Lochinver, ‘Juan, Maria and Alba Escala’ went past me in their car, stopped, donated AND took my excess kit to my B&B! Thank goodness he did as it was a particularly long 5 miles for an out-of-condition ‘puffer’! I got to ‘Polcraig Guest House’ in Lochinver, owned by ‘Cathel Macleod’. He sorted out tomorrow’s accommodation and dropped me off at a lovely pub called ‘The Caberfeidh Pub & Restaurant’ which is located right where the River Inver flows into Loch Inver. There was a high tide and the sea trout were running and leaping (although they were on the small side!). A young lad was fly fishing off the rocks and catching half pounders with almost every cast! The midges were out in abundance so all of the pub guests were indoors enjoying lovely food and drink.
