    West Cottage garden: Harvest Home

    Day end

    What better way to relax and end your day just watching your surroundings. There was a little field across the road from us and we often watched the two men working there. One evening we watched as they completed the job of bringing in the harvest. With a cheery wave they anounced that they were off for a pint which they richly deserved. We settled back seated in the garden a glass of wine to hand and watched as the sun sank low over the landscape creating a vivid light show. Sometimes the simple things in life are the most fulfilling and memorable and the plus side is you won't have to drive back and your bed is just some steps away.

    Dress Code: If it is a still evening which it was on most evenings while we were here, wear clothes which cover your legs and arms. You will have lots of visitors but you won't see them. The mighty midge will have arrived!

    Nip Inn: Not a lot of choices

    If you are a night owl you may be starved of prey, there is no real nightlife just quiet places to ponder your day and the next days' adventure far away from any city lights. . No nightclubs, or cinemas or anything else to hold your attention. The lack of nightlife didn't bother us at all we where not here to trip the light fantastic. The Nip Inn (which was the bar) used to be the former name of the now Highland Hotel which has undergone extensive refurbishments. The Nip Inn is rather sterile with its tables set in a straight line facing the bar. The locals were chatting amongst themselves, but the barman was friendly and keen to know where we had come from and what we thought of the area. You can sample the wide array of whisky then nip out again.

    Dress Code: I really do like the attitude around these parts, casual dress is probably compulsary - no one really cares what you look like and they will never give you a second glance. You are in the heart of nature - be yourself.

    Invershin Hotel: No Salesmen No Hawkers No Customers

    One our first night we thought we would check out the local action. There was only one option open to us - this was the Invershin Hotel. Nothing ventured nothing gained, it was eleven miles to Lairg and this place was a little nearer to where we were staying. The place did look a bit deserted, the almost empty car park should have given us a clue, but no we had arrived and would go in for a drink. there seemed to be only one member of staff on duty and she showed us to the bar, poured us some drinks, then left telling us if we need anything just ring the bell. Left to our own devices we looked around the room, it seemed to be littered with local notices. There was one very prominent notice behind the bar which read 'Contrary to public gossip this hotel is not up for sale' We didn't ring the bell - the place had an eerie, creepy feel about it. Staring at the Stags head and thinking of Hammer House of horror films we left. A few days later we were in a little pub in Altnaharra, which is about twenty miles away, chatting to the barman he asked if the Invershin was closed. Local gossip spreads fast in these parts and yes a few days later it had a sign saying closed. We laughed a lot just one day later ah good news it was open. I think this place must be an open and shut case.

    Dress Code: It doesn't matter what you wear only the girl and the stag will see you and neither will pass comment.
