It has been tastfully modernised, retaining the timber panelled walls and real fires. Outside, weather-permitting, you can enjoy sitting in the garden of about a third of an acre with trees, a long driveway and a flat grass area. Folding wooden outdoor furniture is kept in the large porch.
Downstairs are a kitchen/dining room, spacious sitting room, bathroom and glass porch. The bathroom and kitchen have varnished hardwood floors and were fully refitted in 2008/9. The kitchen/dining room has a heavy pine table to seat 6. The kitchen is equipped for serious cooking with dishwasher, double oven, ceramic hob, microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster and plenty of storage space. The bathroom has a bath and a separate shower cubicle.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We are about 500 miles from the cottage, so you won't see us. We send you the key instructions about 2 weeks before you go. We keep in touch by phone and email and there's a booklet in the cottage containing instructions and useful information. Do make use of the house phone during your stay, especially to call us if there's anything you need to ask.
People sometimes ask if the noise of the trains is a nuisance. The answer is firmly "no". Although the garden borders the Roybridge railway stop, all trains pass slowly and it's very hard to hear them from within the house.

**Things you should know**
- The West Higlands region tends to be quite wet and windy. You can be lucky or unlucky with the weather!
- Midges can be troublesome, particularly around dawn and dusk from May to July. They don't trouble you if you are moving, but you won't want to stand still in a shady place during the midge season.
- Hill walking requires suitable clothing and routine precautions. Please read about Scotland Hill Walking Safety Measures before going into the wilderness.
- Walking through long vegetation in the countryside puts you at risk of sheep ticks. There are simple precautions and remedies which you should read about.
One teacher and one property developer on the brink of retirement. We enjoy the terrain and scenery of the wild bits of Scotland and hope that you will too. We have been letting this property since 1992 and a few years ago have added a larger one at Lochgoilhead.
