Half Term

With many schools in the central belt closed this week and other Scottish and English schools off next week, the area has definitely been a bit busier.  Many people hoping to come to the area to get in some skiing The Nevis Range www.nevisrange.co.uk in Fort William and Glencoe Mountain www.glencoemountain.com in Glencoe have both been enjoying some great skiing, the weather has been dry and calm over the last couple of weeks and we have even had some sunshine!

A great day out on the slopes for beginners or experienced skiers, even a trip up to the cafe for a nice cup of hot chocolate and to admire the views is always a good day out.  Some pictures taken last Friday coming over Rannoch Moor and Glencoe, you can see why the skiing has been good!

If you are planning on going on the hills to walk or climb instead of ski, it may be worthwhile visiting the Clachaig Inn and listening to one of their Winter Safety Lectures www.clachaig.com

Here at Loch Leven Holidays we have been working hard to get the site all ready for the new season, with various jobs to do it is always a busy time.

After the storms we have a few roofs to repair (just a few slates to replace), some new fence panels to put up and an outbuilding roof to replace!!  We also hope to put a balcony on Tiranui Lodge, so our guests can enjoy the spectacular views even more!
