Coul House Celebrations in Scotland.

Coul House Celebrations Scotland.

~ Coul House Celebrations, Scotland  ~

Stuart & Susannah recently went out for a hike up to the top of Tor Achility. Tor Achhilty is a challenging little hill that overlooks Contin that they have been looking to tackle for several years.  Some of the heather was so thick and the hill so steep that Bella Coul House Celebrations in the Scottish Highlands, Molly and Bella the Coul House Hotel Dogs getting a lift in Stuarts Rucksackand Molly could not advance, as you will see from the attached photo, and had to hitch a lift!

There is no route as such, which was part of the challenge. Stuart actually slipped/fell on the way down and hurt his knee, almost crushed Bella as he rolled. As a result, he was unable to walk the dogs for the last week☹.  

Feeling better now, and the leg is getting stronger each day, hopefully back out running and hiking again soon.

The hill has many little gullies hidden by the heather and still holds a fair bit of water, so it is not the best walk to send guests on. However, it was pretty spectacular at the top, and we will try to locate a more straightforward ascent next time to pass on to our gCoul House Celebrations in the Scottish Highlands.

As you can see, a little champagne was enjoyed at the top to celebrate.

Silverbridge Walk in the Highlands of Scotland.

~ Take a virtual walk around Silverbridge, near Contin, in the Highlands of Scotland ~

This area was once bustling with cattle herders who rested thousands of animals here on the long walk to the market places in the South of the country. Now it’s the birdsong, roar of the river and waterfalls that keep you company along this stunning route.

“Every step of this short circular walk is a delight, passing through beautiful woodland close to the banks of a dramatic foaming river. The river is crossed at each end of the walk by picturesque old stone bridges.”

Our receptionist Emma-Fleur recently enjoyed a fantastic day canoeing on Loch Maree in the Scottish Highlands, read what Emma-Fleur had to say:

“My day’s canoeing trip on Loch Maree was a peaceful and a serene tonic, in the troubled world we find ourselves in at present. The scenery was stunning, and I was also lucky enough to see a sea eagle up close! The local adventure guide Chris from Liquid Footprints was superb. His expertise and wide-ranging knowledge made me feel very safe and enabled me to thoroughly enjoy one of the many treasures of the Highlands of Scotland”
