Thank you, Linda for pointing me in this direction. We had good weather, and the scenery on that drive over the hills was just incredible. Easily the best scenic drive yet!
We weren't really expecting the Tea Hut to literally be a shed/lean-to, but Sheena was such a dear old character. It was probably the worst cup of coffee I've ever had at a coffee shop (except for Starbucks, which is always awful), but the experience is the best I've had by far. Sheena is getting elderly now, she was talking about packing it in. I think she'll do it for as long as she can walk from the house to the shed.
We started off with a walk along the loch to loch carron weavers. Then went to Dornie for a coffee (and met a wonderful old couple who talked to us, and generally talked over each other in doing so), went to the castle, and then to Corran for our coffee. Managed to have good weather for much of the day.
Off to the loch inver/cape wrath area at the weekend, and then a couple of days on Mull (staying in tobermory).
Looks like your having a good holiday Pete. If your on Mull, if you go to the west coast you can go on a boat and see the sea eagles fishing. Web site
