Day 13 - Mallaig - Skye - Loch Carron

Today has been a gastro day (as well as cycling!)
Thanks to Fiona at The Seaview, Mallaig for a first class breakfast with everything you could imagine on the buffet table as well as a full Scottish.
Off to the ferry with Sarah demonstrating girl power and taking charge of their stead. We sang 'Over the sea to Skye' including a descant in the chorus. We thought we were good but David said" Will someone put that pig out of its misery!" How rude!
Over the Skye Bridge- difficult to photograph! On to Plockton- a delightful village and the next part of our Gastro Tour. I had Potato cake with avocado, squat lobsters and creme fraiche- see photo.
Onwards to Loch Carron with some steep climbs, including a 1 in 7, and some fast downs. Eek!
Mileage today 50 miles, average 12.3 mph, max 50.34 mphTotal mileage 917miles

  1. A cyclist shows up at the local race on a new bike.
    His friends all ask, “Where did you get a new bike?”
    The cyclist replies, “Well, yesterday I was out running when this absolutely beautiful woman rode up to me on this bike. She threw the bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, “Take what you want!”
