24 September 2009--It's an early flight out. We had to drag ourselves out of the Lounge Bar early last night-- the session was pretty good, and we were of course enjoying our best night in Shetland. So it goes.

The flight is a bit wobbly, and I'm feeling a little queasy. Glad to get on the ground again. We go into Inverness for lunch, and pick up a new road bottle, a 15-year-old Glencadam, to replace the late Milford. Then it's the winding road to Plockton, via Strathcarron. We arrive, happy to be in familiar and friendly territory. Pop the Glencadam for a welcoming dram, and then nap for a while.

Dinner is at the Plockton Inn. Nice to see that they now feature beer from the local brewery--the Crags ale, named for the cliffs we can see from the B&B window, is a really good pint. And we'll have plenty--it's session night here, a real cracker. There is a good balance of instruments, and polished ensemble playing. We leave after the bar is shut off, the players still playing. We'll probably be sorry in the morning...ah, no, we won't. Well worth it.
