Up at cottages going some work in preparation for Visit Scotland's grading visit in 2 weeks. Yesterday morning was a cold start but it brightened up later, great scenery.
This time last year, we only had about 3-5 bookings for the peak summer periods. We’re obviously doing something right, we’re getting returning guests and lots of new ones, 13 bookings over same season currently, with others outside these dates. More people booking early. Thinking of booking? Particularly for multiple weeks/both cottages for family gatherings, availability [...]

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.
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.
