Lochinver Harbour was enlarged by a £7m EU grant and is now used by large Spanish fishing boat filling Spanish lorries with cod and coley. The village is small with a famous pie shop (The Lochinver Larder), a fine real ale pub The Caberfeidh (The Stag's Antler) selling Hebridean Gold from Skye and a hotel owned by the Roux Bros. Above the town is the striking cone shaped Mt Suilven.

Excellent ribeye in the Lochinver Larder and fiddle playing in the Caberfeidh...Lochinver is a good place to stop. Off to Stornoway (Lewis) tomorrow.
