Loch Ewe/Poolewe

Just spoken to Dad. He's had an "easy" day today and knocked off at 2.00 ish. He'd found a really nice campsite at Poolewe so decided to call it a day. Tent is pitched with a view of the Loch and he's even got his own table - a luxury when you are camping!! Not bad for £4.45. There is a pub close by with live music tonight so I can understand why he didn't ride on!

Loch Ewe was used during the second world war for many submarines to gain access to the Atlantic so Dad has been reading up on the history.

The hostel last night in Torridon was very good. This morning he set off out on the A896 towards Kinlochewe. From there he picked up the A832 and stopped off for tea and a bacon buttie in Kinlochewe. He then headed toward Gairloch Harbour and as the weather has been great he sat and watched the boats for a while.

Tomorrow he is heading onto Ullapool. Not sure if I'll get chance to update tomorrow as I'm out but will update on Wednesday if not.
