Different views across Loch Linnhe

By |March 6th, 2017|

Many a picture on this blog show the views across Loch Linnhe from our cottages. I’ve always wondered what it was like from the other side. Yesterday, Sunday, I decided to take a drive around and walk about over to the other side and see what the views were like.

Preparing for New Season

By |March 4th, 2017|

Spent the last few days checking things over for upcoming season. Annual Fire Safety checks done, a few odd repairs. Some new lighting, new fridge and new bedroom furniture for one cottage, some new garden furniture for the other cottage. As well as admiring the views in the various weather conditions.


A quick visit to check on things for the coming season. Lovely weather & views
