From our guest Stuart Mitchell from Kent. He went with Debbie in October. Thanks Stuart. Walking down the world championship cycle track at the Nevis Range is not something I had ever considered doing personally. Not sure I'll do it now. Yes, please to the pics of the cottage please.
I love this pic. It is the contrast of the modern girl and the mediaeval building, and her red top really  stands out. I even quite like the way the back to the camera shot adds to a sense of mystery (very difficult to get away with, back to the camera) . I might put it in the main website, is that ok Stuart?
ps. Note that the photo without the human being in it would be nothing.

Hi John,

We had a great week and excellent weather.

We spent a while looking at Castle Stalker, got the cable car at the Nevis range and then walked back down the mountain on the cycle track (not recommended), found a nice little walk at Glasdrum Wood with a very informative accompanying leaflet, did the waterfall walk at Inchree which was nice until it dumped us out onto the road for the last mile, went to the Glencoe visitors centre which was not a highlight to be honest, walked to Signal Rock which was nice although we had to clamber under barriers blocking the bridge(!).

Attached a picture of Debbie at Castle Stalker in a t-shirt, in October. Really lucky with the weather.

We have some nice pictures of the cottage from across the bay if you're interested? Cottages and mountain reflecting in the water, really lovely. Let me know and I'll zip some up.
