THE operator of a small restaurant in one of the most far-flung corners of Ross-shire has thanked customers for sticking by it during a "really challenging" couple of years.

Gille Brighde at Diabaig on the shores of Loch Torridon offers "fine dining at the end of the road".

As well as local customers from the scattered beauty spot Wester Ross community overlooking Loch Torridon, it has built up a loyal clientèle willing to travel from further afield for its fine fare.

Announcing its winter break, it posted: "The last two years have been a real challenge for us, and many of our fellow 'small warriors' in the hospitality industry.

"It's been a really strange time for all of us. But we're still here, and the future looks a bit brighter. Huge thanks to you all for such warm support and big appetites.

"So many of you are now part of our lives and add a constancy that we really do appreciate. How blessed we are to live, love and laugh here. For now we are on our winter break, looking forward to a wee holiday, catching up with friends and family and plotting better things for the ninth season of the wee restaurant at the end of the road...see you there."
