The weather, after starting coolish, improved immensely in the morning and all was bright and sunny. We wanted to find the road that we used to go down to find Loch Skipport and it was much further than we remembered.
Peter had lots of traffic behind us when the turning suddenly appeared so we carried on over the causeway first before turning round.
Turning back we found the wild ponies seem to have multiplied since our last visit!
The road was just as narrow, however, and Peter found that Madge’s extra width made for a rather stressful drive plus having to turn around to come back was a little tricky!
We decided to try one of the side roads on the non-mountainous side of the main road and found ourselves in the sand dunes behind beach onto the Atlantic. What a great spot!
We parked Madge and got the chairs out – the sun was quite strong by now.
We went down onto the beach and, as usual, Alfie thoroughly enjoyed himself in the seaweed and rocks!
I rather liked these beach sculptures!
On our way back to the main road we captured these…
We had booked to have dinner at the Pollachar Inn:
Very nice meal, even if we did have to listen to a few old fishermen’s tales at the next table!
