Home sweet home...

The Moorings…

As you might remember, we have stayed at our usual accommodation, Tigh Alasdair, for quite a few years now. It’s suited us just fine, and the broadband connection was certainly an added advantage, that’s for sure! Anyway, with coming up later this year, when we enquired about Tigh Alasdair it turned out that the cost increase for being later in the season was just too much for our budget, hence needing to find somewhere new. After a bit of digging around on the internet (handy beast) and several enquiries, we eventually booked for The Moorings - just half a mile along the road from our previous base. There were no interior photos online at all, so we didn’t have a clue what to expect until we turned up here today.

To say we were pleasantly surprised was an understatement. On arriving we chose to enter through the first door we saw, which turned out to technically be the back door, opening straight into a lovely bright and spacious kitchen. Masses of worktop and cupboard space, an almost brand new hob and oven, even a dishwasher!

The hallway too is bright and airy…

…And the bathroom is positively the lap of luxury compared to ours, lovely and big, beautifully tiled, and immaculate.

There is even a dining room, which is a nice touch.

The whole place is beautifully fitted out and decorated, and all in all, we will be extremely tempted to come back again I think. The views aren’t quite as good, but we do still have some hills in sight - South Lee is just across the Loch from us, and we can also just see the "hump" at the top of Burrival from the front room. It just wouldn’t be the same without a "favourite view"!
