Stopped off here for lunch in the cafe on our way south. Excellent food and service from really lovely staff. Sat out in the sun with a view across Caithness to the Sutherland mountains.

What A fantastic museum to visit. From Google it sounded like it wasn't open yet, but no problem getting in. You pay £2.50 for an adult in the Tea Room beside it. So much interesting things to see inside. We stayed for an hour and next door in another small bothy type place they had old farm machinery too. The Tearoom sells home cooked food and cakes to either eat inside or outside on picnic benches.

We passed this near lunch time and decided to call into the tearooms. The food was nice and the service was excellent. We went to visit the longhouse and spent a pleasant time looking back into the past. Some before our time, but some still in use when I was young.

We stopped next door for a cuppa and a bacon roll and we saw the sign that said if we wanted to see inside the museum we just had to ask. Well worth the visit.

This is an easy place to miss as you drive through. If not for our guide, we wouldn't have had the chance to walk through the museum. There is so much to see! Antique bikes, machinery and tools, housewares, pictures and book...everywhere you looked there was something else to see! I could have spent a lot more time there!

An amazing unplanned stop at Laidhay tearoom as we headed home from Orkney. This is a little gem of a place and we will most definitely be returning. Very clean and tidy establishment. Very good customer service. The food as all home made and the baking is just superb! We opted for the Cullen skink soup which was better than the soup served up in some of Glasgow’s fine fish restaurants. We also had an open toastie which was made with cheese, bacon, red onion and apple! Fabulous! A slice of homemade Bakewell tart which had a wonderful pastry base. And the gingerbread cake was a master piece of perfection! Well done to the two ladies who bake, cook and serve amazing food to the travellers on the road and for those visiting the Laidhay Croft Museum.

The croft was full on antiquities from a by gone era.
It really showed how hard life was for these people living then.
The only wood they had was driftwood they gathered from the beach. It is well worth a visit.
