Mountford family August 2021

This was our first escape since the start of Covid and a first trip to Scotland for my wife and children. It was a great holiday with many memorable moments. Perhaps the best of the weather was seen by guests in July, but we felt ourselves lucky to see rapid changes throughout every day. The views changed and suggested new opportunities to explore – a high pass to Applecross with spectacular views, walking to Torridon, great seafood at Kishorn, and even a day chasing the sun on Skye, with walks, magic glens, visit to Talisker distillery and the sight of the Cuillins as the sun set. Perhaps best of all was a gentle stroll down to Shieldaig and looking for crabs in the loch, and an even slower amble back up to An Cos. At the start and end of each day was the lovely welcoming An Cos, where every creature comfort beckoned. It was a splendid holiday, enjoyed by all…and we didn’t have to go half way around the world to get there.
