Fine food in Lochinver

It was a short day from Risor to Lochinver in near flat seas much to the relief of Sally and Michael. We tied up alongside the sheet piling fishing dock and struggled to control the flow in the industrial sized re-fuelling pipe. We had already burned 136 litres!

After a small debate we elected to stay the night on the pontoon and enjoy the fine dining at the  lovely pie shop which, as usual, didn't disappoint. 

The starboard steaming light keeps shorting out so we are going to have to check out the fisherman's chandlery for a spare before we leave. At the harbour office we filled in the papers to check Shimshal out of the EU and paid our dues. So all set to leave woth the tide at around 10 am Wednesday. We have stowed the RIB on deck but are expecting light winds from the east but what we get remains to be seen!
