As the day progressed there were many other diversions too. In the loch-side town of Arisaig. We found another even tinier museum.

This was the Arisaig Museum of Sea and Islands which had a lot of interesting curios to view and even touch. Lots of spinning and knitting things for fiber fanatics.
|There were several vintage spinning wheels|
|Kiddie dyed homespun yarns|
|There were even things you could walk off with if you liked.|
|Olde Village Smithy things|
There were also natural history objects to examine.

|The detour to the back roads of Inverness|
|There were friendly locals along the way|
|Much of the road was one lane|
|Picturesque inlet on Loch Morar|

|Notice how the weather in the day's photos changed on a dime|
|Loads of clean fleece|
|Awesome assortment of wild picked fungi and galls|

|Fun seeing 'my' local waterfowl also enjoy a trip to Scotland|
|Their ears are totally dinky in comparison to California's Mule Deer|
We got back to Fort Williams around dusk. We went to a little restaurant recommended to us, and there enjoyed fish and chips and other local fare. T'was a long, l-o-n-g day we had.
Here is a wee bit of the visit at the craft shop mentioned earlier in this post. Owner Deirdre and Ila conversed on their mutual fondness for Ikea, I bought the hand made wall hanging woven by Deirdre herself.
