There is still time to book a spring holiday,The island is much quieter during the spring months and the scenery is fantastic , the light makes photos amazing. plenty of stunning waterfalls and more chances to see the wildlife and eagles, the skies are my past time in the winter with the Northern lights and the amazing starie skies. No light polution makes all the difference. The northern lights can be seen from the cottage door and are definetly worth seeing. if you are looking for a nice peaceful break then don't hesitate to get in touch, I am open all year around

The Kelpie or Each Uisge (water horse) is a mythical creature that inhabits various Lochs and streams in the Highlands. Loch Mor claims to be home to one such creature. A close encounter is thankfully unlikely; more likely is an encounter with one of the many creatures that share his domain. Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles, Otters, Foxes and more recently Red Deer have all made this their home. The spectacular sea cliffs make the perfect vantage point to spot Mink Whales, Basking Sharks, Porpoise, Dolphins, Seals and the varied groups of Sea Birds.a perfect retreat for bird watchers.
It took 3 weeks to carve this Kelpie on the cottage door.
