September and October are sometimes quite good months for a break. Helen Konachick emailed us. Thank you Helen. The photos look really nice. you look lovely by the waterfall but I can't upload it Helen, it comes out horizontal for some reason. Not you fault, not mine. I blame Bill Gates. Always have done. The Holly tree rainbow looks nice but it is not the same. Sorry.

"Glencoe was gorgeous. Lovely time of year to visit. Weather could have been a lot worse; bouts of rain most days, but also some sunshine, which meant a lovely rainbow. Only snow we encountered was up a mountain. It certainly could've been much wetter, so feel we were lucky.

We went walking most days. Cuil Bay was great - saw a seal popping up every few mins, and Highland Cattle. Very boggy ground to walk on. Taking the lift up Glencoe Mountain Resort was excellent. We walked about at the top to the 'summit', saw deer, and scrambled down. 

The walk around Braveheart territory was challenging in places, but also very enjoyable. We loved the view from the Holly Tree. (That is the restaurant and hotel close by the cottage. JOHN)
I've attached a few photos with people in them for your blog."
