We were on the machair, our canvas tent successfully erected, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with rolling waves breaking on the beach whilst eating crab sticks, foam shrimps, warm cloudberry jam on salty crackers and drinking Cannon ball green tea. Later we started making supper; roast codwith Tabasco, monkfish wrapped in pancetta and key lime pie. Then, interrupted by the rain, we went back inside. Listening to the sound of falling raindrops on the tent we had further snacks of prawn crackers and roasted seasoned seaweed before we decided to go to a restaurant, ordering prawn cocktail with Mary Rose sauce and raspberry cranachan.
