New Page On The Pottery House Website

Had a great idea the other day, don't know why we haven't thought about it before.

The Pottery House website needs a restaurant recommendations page.

Now added, hope you find it useful.

Red Squirrels In the Garden

We see red squirrels in the garden on and off throughout the year, there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. Sometimes there are here every day, sometimes we don't see them for days or even weeks.

At the moment though when natural food is scarce we see them every day, not just one either, this morning three have been chasing each other around the tree with the squirrel feeder on it.

It's lovely to see, the are beautiful animals.

Here's a few photos for you to enjoy, I'll try and post a video of them chasing each other.

The Orange Marmalade Is Nearly All Gone

The home made orange marmalade is nearly all gone, but don't panic, it's only a few weeks until marmalade making season is here when the Seville oranges appear in the shops, towards the end of January.

However just to tide us over I've made a fresh batch of our very popular lemon marmalade.

There's a couple of extra jars for sale if you're staying with us soon and would like some to take home.

Winter Storms Bring Dramatic Seas

It's great to see the frost and snow in the winter, but that's not the only excitement that winter brings.

Low pressure systems frequently rush across the Atlantic into Scotland bring strong winds and that means rough seas.

One such storm hit us a week or so ago, so we rushed out to the East cost and captured this photo at Burghead, between Naird and Lossiemouth.

Was so lucky to catch the sun going down behind the lighthouse.

Skimming Ice Across A Frozen Loch Tarff

Loch Tarff, on the road between Whitebridge and Fort Augustus is high in the hills and frequently completely freezes over during cold spells in the winter.

If you take a piece of ice and skim it across the surface it makes the strangest noise.
