Meeting a local at Golspie, Scotland

This morning, we departed our lodgings in Dornoch and proceeded as follows:

 

To nearby Golspie, where we visited the beach, Big Burn (stream), Water Mill (grain), and local church. At latter, two locals came to provide us with a tour of the building and supply information on local history.
