for Self catering Very few lochside
Cottages are near the most beautiful Glen in Scotland. This pretty lochside holiday
cottage by Glencoe between Fort William and Oban. We overlook the Bay of Kentallen,
Loch Linnhe by Ben Nevis.
WHY SELF CATERING IS SO SO MUCH BETTER THAN B&BCOME AND GO as you please. You can
eat in CHEAPLY. Peak time week, family of 4, only £23per person/per night.
The Gulf Stream started flowing 10,000 years ago and brought us out of our last Ice
Age. It starts off around Mexico as a narrow stream with a surface current flowing
at nearly 6 miles per hour, 300 times faster than the Amazon. Off Scotland it gets
broader and the the flow is down to 1 mile per hour. Then the water sinks as it gets
colder and saltier and reverses underneath to go back to Mexico.
This is what enables us all to live here. Simple as that. It is much warmer in the
West of the area than it is inland. It gets much wetter when the rain clouds hit
Av temp is much warmer than Jan and Feb. March is still good for snow but everything
starts warming up in April. Photographers come in March, and skiers, hill walkers
come in April
The short weekend and midweek breaks are popular.
“Get away from it all, let’s start the summer”
“Had a great week, 2 days of rain, the rest were lovely. Had a busy day in Oban,
got the ferry over to Mull, then on to Tobermory.
The cottage is lovely and cosy. Thank you for a lovely few days” Shona and Rebecca.
“Had a lovely stay, managed to see three otters when the water was still on the Isle
of Mull. Went to the Hidden Valley on day one. There is so much amazing landscape
in this area. The cottage was lovely and we made use of the garden” Natalie and Michael.
