It feels like a real home. I could spend hours sitting at the huge windows just watching the ever changing view, and the bird life at the loch edge below. That included the disconcerting sight of a huge black-backed gull swooping down to take a duckling off the water, and the subsequent concerted efforts of a group of ducks coming together to protect the remaining brood. Weather notwithstanding, but with rather less sexy raincoats than Billy Connolly, we managed to explore a lot of the island, and seek out quiet corners. If you want to avoid the mass of walkers heading up to the Fairy Pools just keep going to the end of the road down Glen Brittle, for a beach with no-one else there, and a choice of paths to access the surrounding countryside. I would only make one small point--Mette's email reminded us not to leave unwashed dishes in the dishwasher when leaving, but only five tablets were left in the house; two more would probably solve what appears to have been a problem!
