Over the winter we have been doing the usual maintenance list for the cottages and boat.
The cottages have had a new coat of paint internally and their usual deep clean; we have also put down new floors in the kitchens. They are now ready for the busy season ahead and we hope all those who visit will see that they are, as usual, being kept up to the excellent standard for which they are known.
Tom has sent a lot of time running up and down to the yard at Kishorn where ‘Damsis” our 44 foot charter yacht is kept over the winter. This is the other side of our business, it keeps Tom busy all through the year and keeps him out of trouble! The engine has been serviced, new floor covering and pipes in the heads, she has had a full polish and layers of antifoul, not to mention the myriad of small jobs required to keep her ‘ship shape and Bristol fashion’.
The garden is looking sad, the winter gales have taken their toll but as soon as the weather improves we will once again be out there tidying up ensuring that it is an area in which guests can relax and enjoy the west coast sun and views. One item we have invested in the season is a new barbecue, available to all who visit, so you will be able to cook your local venison burgers, highland beef, fresh caught fish etc al fresco. Keep those delicious smells down though as we may be tempted to gate crash your feast!
