MONDAY 16th MAY 2011
Somewhere between Strathcarron and Cannich I managed to sell the house. The wonders of the modern mobile telephony devices! So, with a big breakfast tucked up inside, Andy & I set off in a very chipper state of mind, to see if we could open up the Bearnock Tearooms (reputedly shut) for a second breakfast.
At the point of embarkation, always a tricky dismount on the old wreck of a landing stage, it was apparent that no-one had ever possessed a map of this section of the walk and so, like the Pied Piper, I led the merry band to Ault-na-goire, the wonderful Janet & Alex Sutherland's croft, with the threat of instant demise should I be leading them all the wrong way. Thankfully, I survived to arrive to tea and cakes and then to sit at their table to be treated to wonderful hospitality and good food.
