SATURDAY: DAY 23: I had porridge for breakfast then we were off to INVEREWE GARDENS which is owned by the NTS so we were able to use our card. It is beside Loch EWE & is nurtured by the warm currents of the North Atlantic & has different types of exotic plants. It was started by Osgood Mackenzie in 1862. While we were there it rained on and off and we would try to hide under the trees for cover. We got petrol in a town called LAIDE for 33.02 pounds. We got on the A832 to GRUINARD BAY and walked on the beach where I collected many pretty little Seashells of different varieties & colors. (pink, orange, white & purple) We stopped at a Viewpoint LITTLE LOCH BROOM. Saw a lamb nursing on the road then we saw mountains with snow on them which I think were the STRATHMORE MOUNTAINS.
Then we took a single track road to LOCHINVER past ENARD BAY to DAVAR B&B that was also a cute place. Our room was on the 2nd floor & we got another nice view of the harbour. We got settled in and went to the RIVERSIDE BISTRO for dinner which I remember it as a cute place & good food. I had nachos with guacomale, cheese and sauce with a tuna melt. I know, What a Combination! lol We stayed in for the night ( still recovering from being out on SKYE ) & saw a Rainbow over the town but were unable to see sunset because of the clouds. The rainbow made up for the absent sunset!
