Three feet of rain per second. We loved it.

Youngsters only care about rain, cold and snow if the parents make a fuss. This wonderful family just gets out there and does it. They stayed at the cottage last week.

HI John and Gillian,
Thanks for having us at Bayview. We had a great week. The whole place is stunning and the cottage was perfect for us. All the little ones enjoyed being there.
We had one glorious sunny day and walked the old road through Glencoe (with buggy and baby rucksack!) Phenomenal views. The last 2 days were snowing heavily, which made doing things tricky, but one of the snowy days we walked (unbelievably the three year olds did walk themselves) up to the first waterfall up Glen Nevis path.

The next day was difficult to do anything, but when the clouds cleared (for about 10 seconds at a time) the views of snow covered tops were breathtaking. In between times it followed the traditional three feet of rain per second, so we did some the other things you suggested eg sealife centre (great for our kids), Ice
climbing at Kinlochleven (hard work!) but good play area for the kids at both.

We had a great time, thanks.
With best wishes
Damian, Barbara, Elizabeth, Catherine and Ruth
That story takes us back to our own family - quite a few years back, it must be said. You can see the details of where they went on the following pages
