From Loch to Loch

We were awake before 7:00 and on the road by 9:20. The roads are narrow and windy for the most part but easy to navigate. Just after Shieldaig Loch we took the scenic coastal route to Applecross. We bought smoked salmon at the Applecross Smokehouse which we had for lunch.

 The scenery is bleak and rugged with an amazing amount of water flowing down the mountains.

We had espresso at The Applecross Inn and then took a narrow and steep road which is not usable in winter to Kishorn. This was an amazing 11 mile journey.

At Lochcarron we stopped for a half pint of local ale. Dave had the Golden Cow and I chose Red Cow. This is a family run hotel. Our picnic lunch was at South Strome and shortly after that we turned onto the A87, the same road we took when we left Skye.

We’ve been able to see the Island most of the day. 38 minutes later we were back on a road not yet travelled. At Invermoriston we stopped at Glen Rowan Cafe for espresso and tiffin.

We stopped our driving for the day at Fort Augustus and checked into the Lovat Hotel. We took a walk along the Caledonian Canal before having drinks at The Lock Inn.

 An Innis & Gunn for Dave and a Somersby Cider for me. We relaxed before having dinner at the Brasserie and had after dinner drinks in the lounge.
