we then travelled off the beaten path along the A836 via Bonar Bridge. It was what we would deem a C class road, this went on for miles on single tracks with passing places. Suddenly we came upon an Inn in the middle of nowhere, Crask Inn

this was built in 1800's for drovers. it has its own water supply (and filters) with a generator (wondered why it was so dim with the lights) we had a great chat with Denise the landlords wife. the landlord was also a minister and had a church on the premesis.
