Total sunshine 7 days out of 7 - Scottish highlands!

This is the tiny island of Bal-na-gowan off Cuil Bay near our cottage. There are signs of an old stone circle on it, and a Columban monk was supposed to live in a cave there for many years. Cold, wet and often fearsome we would think. We love this report from our guests last week.

Back to work already. We had the most amazing week!! The cottage was lovely and so well equipped. We particularly appreciated your laminated guide. I know the area well but it was nice to have a second opinion! Having a garage to store all the, bikes, buggies and surfboards was a real bonus!

The weather was unbelievable, too hot on some days, 7 out of 7 days were sunny. The kids loved Tralee bay and Cuil bay, we got the youngster her first wet suit in Oban and she spent most of her time in the water or buried in sand! The little one is now just about walking and is a dedicated paddler. I managed to get out on my windsurfer twice which is something of a record, not much wind but fun anyway.

We have an offroad buggy with us so managed to do the Strontian wood walks, Glen Nevis and a few other local low level walks. As you can tell the holiday was a great sucess, we're all brown and relaxed.
