Pottery House is a small B&B on the beautiful and quieter south side of Loch Ness.
Snow In Dores
Had our first snow of the winter today. Was snowing quite heavily around 10am this morning, but unfortunately it has turned mild this evening so the snow has all melted. Looks good on the mountains though.
First the Pine Marten discovered the feeder intended for the red squirrels (see previous post) and he's now a regular visitor (if you're booked to stay with us in the next couple of weeks be sure to ask if you'd like to see him).
Now the red squirrels have decided to move on to the peanut feeder intended for the birds.
It's not that the pine marten have scared the red squirrels off their feeder, they're on it every day as well and we keep it topped up, it's just that some squirrels seem to relish the challenge of hanging upside down trying to pull peanuts out through the wire.
We like to see the bird life from the breakfast room window, but this morning guests were a little surprised to look out and see a duck staring back at them. Took him a while to work out how to get off again, having trouble taking off along a narrow ridge, but he managed it eventually.
