March is always a busy month filled with pre-season prep in time for the first guests due on 5th April. Along with the dull painting and cleaning there is also time for making preserves for the breakfast table Call now to book through out the year There are a few 2 night stays still available in April www.offthehillskye.com or call (+44) 01471 833305
It’s that time of the year…..the nights are drawing in and the number of visitors to the island is dropping…it must mean it’s the end of another 7 month season. Well almost, I will be open for a couple of weeks 19th-29th November and 26th January – 2nd February…..only two rooms. Phone 07710 783081 or email to book a room at Off the Hill B&B
So winter is on its way – this morning whilst outside (at 0730) opening the deer gate, the clouds parted and there it was, on the very top section of Beinn Sgritheall – snow, yes that’s right, snow has fallen on the top of our nearest Monroe. Don’t forget your hats and gloves people!
Autumn right outside the East bedroom window Up close and personal #roomwithaview #autumn
#ifyougodowntothewoodstoday #fairytoadstools #itcantbeautumnalready …can it? Lots to see on the path through Kinloch Woods on the way to the abandoned village at Leitir Fura Toadstools and mushrooms – quick where’s the foraging book? First crop of blackberries picked too today – ready for the next batch of homemade blackberry and apple jam for the B&B’s breakfast table
Introducing my 2019 calendar (…is it that time of the year already?) Those who know me or have visited the B&B will now that I also take landscape photos that I sell at the B&B and every year (its become somewhat of a tradition) I produce a calendar of photos I ave taken in the previous 12 months – a montage if you will! The full set of 12 photos can be viewed online and retail at £10 each (+P&P as required). They can be purchased via my photography website too or you can get your hands on one at the B&B or craft fairs I’ll be attending in the local area leading up to Christmas (sorry I used the C word!!)
