17th – 24th October 2022

October 24, 2022 by Alison in

W e have had a most spectacular week, started off climbing Ben Nevis and have ached for the rest of the week
but well worth it for the views. Glencoe mountain range was exceptionally magical, chairlift to the top walk , climb the rest breath taking views. Highlight of our week was a Ferry from Oban, exploring the islands and accompanied by around 60 Dolphins magical. I think we have walked and climbed the surrounding area , it has been heaven.

The Cottage is a wonderful place to stay with everything you need and much more.
Thank you very much
