Lochcarron Scottish Highlands

Lochcarron Scottish Highlands

Lochcarron is described as a”veritable metropolis with TWO supermarkets. Well the supermarkets are quite small but sell everything you need. The village consists of cottages stretched along the shore of the loch. We were lucky to visit on the day that a community market had been organised to raise funds to buy local woodland that is for sale. The really good bargain was lunch £5 including main, pudding and tea or coffee. It was fabulous. well done the ladies of Lochcarron.
A visit to Plockton was also on the agenda. Plockton is an idyllic village with a tropical air about it. (When the sun shines) there are palm trees growing and a couple of great pubs. There was also a boat trip advertised that offered you your money back if seals were not spotted.-cant be bad!
Plockton was used to film the old TV series “Hamish Macbeth”
On the way back I spotted a craft shop and turned a sudden hard left. I left husband in Damnvan1 reading the paper and spent a pleasant half hour in “Kiki’s Craft corner”
There was a fine selection of fabrics,wools,notions,and advice. I discussed my “star”problem in my patchwork and Kiki gave me some top tips on what to do. She was very helpful and knowledgable -thank you Kiki. of course I didn’t come away empty handed, how could I resist?
I am looking for a 52 week project. The sort of thing where I would do some every week from one birthday to the next. I can only come up with Granny Squares. Has anyone any other ideas?
