Ten Years Later

Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the day we collected the keys to Pottery House and moved in.

It's been a wonderful time and I can't believe how quickly it has gone.

Amazing Loch Ness Sunset

Yesterday evening there was a hill side fire on the other side of Loch Ness from us, combined with a spectacular sunset.

The effect was like something out of a Sci-fi movie, I've never seen anything like it.

New USB Charger Points On The Wall Sockets

We're always on the lookout for gizmos to make life a little bit easier for travelers and our visitors. The latest...

We've just installed wall sockets in all our guest rooms with built in USB charging points. No need to remember your charger, just plug the USB cable straight into the wall. And because each socket has two USB ports you can charge your phone and your tablet at the same time.

How cool is that!!!

All our guest rooms now have sockets with built in USB charger points for phones and tablets.
