The Crask Inn - later

Well that has to be the best evening we've spent on this trip by a remote country 8 miles (the distance to the next habitation).

Dinner in the bar with a bunch of other cyclists.  3 of them doing the end to end thing, a Welsh couple who had been on Orkney and Shetland and a couple of Dutch blokes who were heading towards Orkney and Shetland.

Angus from Kirkcaldy who comes up here for weeks at a time played the accordion.

We got through most of the Black Isle beers.

A beautiful sunset topped it off.

Sandy has retired to his Wendy house for the night.

Mike and Kai have been running this place for the last 13 years.  Electricity comes from a generator.  It couldn't be described as luxurious but it's comfortable and homely.  No TV or the like, but there is no need for it.  Given at one point today we thought we might be sleeping in a field I would have to say we have lucked out big time.  This is one of those things we'll remember for a very long time.
