Brilliant! Matt's word, not mine

The IceFactor wall at Kinlochleven
The following email came from our guest at the New Year. Thanks Matt. It was a pleasure having you stay.
Hi John


Cottage was fantastic, walking and climbing were great and it didn't rain (that much!). We solved the boiler problem - Michelle was very helpful.

The Ice Factor was good - helpful staff and a good setup. Climbing wise we did Garadh Gully on Ben Nevis and went up and around the Three Sisters in Glencoe. The ice was starting to melt is places but there was plenty to go at still. We spent New Years eve in the Clachaig which was very, very busy, but the atmosphere made it a great night. We then spent New Years day walking from the cottage back to the Clachaig to pick up the car (we got a taxi back on New Years eve - it only cost £20, very reasonable). The walk was lovely, we set off early from the cottage, went up Glen Duror to its head and then up and over Sgorr a Choise before dropping down into Gleann Leac na Muidhe which eventually brought us out at the Signal Rock car park. It was then just a short walk to the pub. It took us about 5 and a half hours in total. It was great.

I'll collect some photos together for you and send on.
