Winter arrives

Winter arrived in the glen today with our first fall of snow. Admittedly it’s hardly a white out, but with the temperature not managing to achieve 2 degrees, accompanied by a less than pleasant north-westerly, we were grabbing for an extra layer while dressing this morning.


Thankfully, outdoor chores are at their minimum at this time of year. Kevin dispatched his last Muscovy duck last night, so now we just have the more manageable population of our permanent residents; Snowball and his hens, MacRae and his ladies and Huff ‘n’ Puff and Biggles. Cold as the water must have been, I think that Huff is more than happy to join his regular female companions and get back to normal living conditions too!

Cold feet, warm hearts!

On the inside, ‘The Beast’ is behaving impeccably keeping us all warm and Wallace is thoroughly enjoying his inheritance – Boris’s fireside spot!
