I decided to make another stop at the Balnakeil Craft Village just a mile or so from Durness and Sangomore Beach. Today Balnakeil Craft Village is a collection of workshops and studios and one chocolate coffee house, the Cocoa Mountain, famous for their hot chocolate.
The village started after World War II as a military encampment and some time after that people converted the military buildings into colourful workshops.
The Balnakeil Craft Village in Scotland was officially established in 1964 and is now used to provide local artists and craftsmen with an outlet for sale. If, by now, you are imagining one or two rustic military buildings with a few lonely inhabitants you couldn’t be further off the mark! (Scotland.com)
From here I made my way down the NC500 along the Westcoast in direction of the Assynt Viewpoint.
