This photo was taken at midnight at Kentallen Bay, Glencoe

This is the lovely photograph Tina mentions in her delightful e-mail to us. We absolutely adore renting out this cottage - all of our guests have been really nice, no kidding.

Hi John,We had a really wonderful time at your cottage. The weather got better as the week progressed and we ended up being able to do all the things we wanted to. Thanks for all the info in the cottage - it made our visit much more efficient! No wondering about what we could do! We used the green walks book a lot.
Within hours of arriving I saw, out of the bedroom window, a seal lazily swimming in the bay. * Not dark at nearly midnight ( see photo)* 2 hr Walk around the top of the cable car on Ben Nevis on a gloriously clear day.* Walk around Lochan in Glen Coe* Walk along a bit of the West Highland Way* Lots of other forest walks - no midges!* Day long 'Three Islands' coach trip to Mull, Staffa and Iona . Five ferries and two coaches helped us to see a lot in one day. * Meal out at Ballachulish House Hotel. Stunning food - bill for two about £115 - but worth it for a treat. Very friendly staff but watch out for the pre dinner drinks though, £6.00 for a gin and tonic! We nearly went home then before the food was even ordered. * I enclose some photos.(PS it was too busy to get near the world downhill bike races - we should have gone earlier but the weather was not good. Park and ride system was in operation.) Thanks again for a lovely holidayTina and family
The Ballachulish house hotel has one Michelin star and is ten minutes drive away.
PS we have one week left for renting the cottage in late September this summer, Most f October onwards is free.
