A chilly trip out!

Clare with one of our new arrivals

Our guests today left fairly promptly after breakfast as they were catching the ferry to the Outer Hebrides. Even so, they still had time for a quick visit to our ten newly hatched chicks!

It’s been a beautiful day, starting off all pink over the ridge first thing. Because of an early start, chores were consequently completed earlier and Kevin suggested a wee trip out on the bike for lunch. So, with bedding and towels blowing nicely in the breeze, we set of on our first trip of the year. Temperatures were in single figures however, so the ride was a bit chilly. Eilean Donan Castle over on the mainland was our destination and at about an hour and fifteen minutes, it was far enough in such a temperature! The colours en route were dazzling, the lochs sparkling and distant snow-capped mountains completed scenery which was breathtaking.
