Winter1st June 2019
We're now fully booked at the Bothy for Summer 2019. We are currently taking bookings from October 2019 onwards with 7 night stays, arriving and departing on Saturdays.
This weekend, the last of March, the weather has been the best we've seen so far this year and Spring has begun to slowly arrive on the Croft. We've had a large flock (hundreds) of Redwings hanging around and the sound of them chattering away has brought us us all here happiness. They've been joined by a wheezing Greenfinch, regular Skeins of Whooper swans and migrating geese, and our first Swallow of the year (31st of March). Celandines are popping up everywhere and the sun felt warm today whilst we painted the new hen house (more on that later!). Our friends were lucky to see a Pine Marten AND a Long Eared Owl on the croft this weekend too - we haven't seen either in over three and a half years here!
Other winter jobs have included the ongoing tasks of cutting and stacking logs and kindling for firewood, digging drains and the processing of innumerable seeds and young trees.
We're also really excited about getting out on the water this Summer with Kate and Will of the SCOTLAND STAND UP PADDLE BOARD COMPANY based in Plockton. We wish them lots of success. You can find more info on their Facebook page.
