Autumn is on its way!

Well with the children well and truly back at school, the summer is officially over! Although it wasn’t much of a summer weather wise, we had the odd nice sunny day but they were soon forgotten with the amount of rain we’ve had. ¬†Although compared to some areas of the word we have been very lucky!

The swifts which were nesting on our house have decided its getting too cold for them and have moved back to warmer climes.
The trees are starting to look at their best as more autumn colours appear and the lights evenings are getting shorter.
The temperatures are becoming cooler with it only getting to 11 degrees today! Ben Nevis will soon be receiving its first fall of snow!

Many more of our visitors seem to have discovered the joys of canoeing and being able to go straight from the chalets. Many of them have brought their own boats and paddles and enjoyed exploring the loch.
Fishing has also been popular with some good sea trout being caught in the last few weeks.

This year the Pinemartens have had 2 little ones, who are all currently hiding in our wood shed, they have not been the least bit camera shy and and many of our guests have had visits from them looking for their favourite bread and peanut butter.

The midge season is nearly over and outdoor activities are now much more enjoyable! Also the chance to BBQ without being eaten is proving popular.

 

Some recent lovely reviews from our guests.

We spent a wonderful week at the Loch Leven Chalets. It was clean and outfitted well. The location was perfect for hiking in the Glencoe area and taking day trips to Mallaig, Glenfinnan, Fort Williams and Oban. The view across Loch Leven to the highlands was a beautiful view to wake up to each morning. Ian and Sharon were great hosts and I would highly recommend a stay in one of their chalets.

We had a fabulous 2 weeks in the otter chalet which was excellent for us in many ways. Facing Loch Leven, we had a beautiful view over the loch ( where the children could play) and mountains, perfect for visiting Glencoe and its surroundings ( Fort William or climbing Ben Nevis), the chalet had every confort we needed , super clean and above all Ian and Sharon were perfect hosts, leaving us enjoying our holidays but very helpful and friendly if we needed to talk to them… Perfect location to see pine martens ( rare to see them normally) as well as they just run around in front of your chalet… A lovely place to stay in to enjoy this part of Scotland.

A good position to view loch and hills, very clean and well equipped. Great for walking at Glencoe and midway between oban and fort william for attractions. A warm welcome from Ian and Sharon on arrival then left in privacy rest of the week.
