Always looking to improve our guest house in Spean Bridge

We are always looking for ways to improve our guest house for the benefit of guests. One such improvement this season is our Tencel mattress toppers which will soften the bed surface but because it's Tencel it should not make the bed too warm.

Sunshine in Spean Bridge, near Fort William

Lovely spell of weather here in Spean Bridge,  Lochaber.
First photo of the garden side of the house as the morning light breaks through the Birch wood.
Second photo of the stream at the side of the house with evening sun.

Spring time on Loch Oich near Spean Bridge

Today's photo was taken just across the road from the Well of the Seven Heads store looking across Loch Oich.
The actual well of the Seven Heads was where the heads of 7 government supporters were dropped during one of the Jacobite uprisings.
There is a tunnel under the road to the Well.

Spean Bridge, near Fort William is a great place to cycle and walk

Just been for a cycle out the Coire Choille Road to the scout camp at Insch and back.  Not far but haven't been out on my bike for ages.
As you can see from the sign posts there are ancient public rights of way from here to Rannoch,  Kinlochleven, Crieff and Falkirk !
Also noticed new notice board for walks in Killiechonate forrest with 2 new routes.  Must try them soon.

Spring bee in crocus flower, Spean Bridge guest house near Fort William

We have had some beautiful days recently and the many crocus flowers have been out. A couple of bees have been taking advantage of some early opporunities.

When choosing plants we try to be bee and butterfly friendly.

Beautiful blue skies in the West Highlands

Well for the third time this year I am putting away the snow shovel.
Blue skies,  sunshine,  flowers open,  bees out.
Fingers crossed.
