Some work and a little play at Stoer Bay

Our holiday in Stoer
Last week we took a break from our Monday – Friday jobs. This give us the opportunity to look at new wood cladding for Edal & Mijbil and we are very excited to now have that on order.
We also spent some time at the chalets and are delighted that despite the winds trying their hardest to stop us we now have Edals new roof on. Such a relief to have that done in time for this winter.

Heading inland from Clachtoll peat track

At the end of the week I had a few days to chill on my own due to hubby being required to ferry both children here there and every where over the weekend. Not one to slack off I took this opportunity to explore some of the walks close by that as yet I hadn’t explored.
One of these wanders was along the peat track route from Clachtoll to Stoer. This fairly easy 6 mile walk had a view at every corner and I would highly recommend it. I am so glad I decided to wear the old faithfull wellie boots though as the weather has been making up for the extra dry summer lately and it was especially boggy in parts.

A wee lochan crossing on the Stoer end of the peat track & looking over to the hamlet of Stoer.

I also put the running shoes on a couple of times and stretched the legs, the problem though is that the views are so stunning you do have to keep stopping.
