Friends Visit Arctica

Jim and Euan on An Cruaidh

Jim and Euan on An Cruaidh

We had two days in Gairloch before the arrival of our friends. Sunday was misty and drizzly all day – just fine for catching up on boat chores, reading and relaxing. Monday was a beautiful day and, after finding a taxi when the bus failed to appear, the Skipper took to the hills between Gairloch and Loch Maree. This is a lovely stretch of hills – not high but very rugged, rough walking and with a nice sense of isolation. When Morag & Euan and Jim & Linda arrived we had lunch and blethered for a few hours before taking a short walk up Flowerdale. This sharpened appetites for a bar dinner at The Old Inn, which we can highly recommend – good menu, excellent food and fair value. Next day the men went off for an enjoyable longish walk to a little hill, leaving the ladies to their day of more sociable activities. Again we dined at The Old Inn before returning aboard for a nostalgic singsong. Today we said goodbye to our friends and sailed up to Lochinver, where we are leaving Arctica for three weeks before resuming our cruising.
