This weekend has been a delight. Bed and breakfast guests in Lunga House, bride and grooms enjoying a chance to have a look around and chat and eat cake, friends popping by to say hello, handsome photographer Nick Kirk (he will so hate me for saying that!) spending time here at Easter with his lovely wife and little girl - and dropping in some fab new brochures.
Then supper in The Lord of The Isles down at the marina - where the friendliest people in the whole wide world look after you and bring you wonderful food - the menu is genuinely to die for just now and we watched the local fishing boat bringing in some of the biggest lobster that I've seen in ages.
And then a visit to my friends newly re-opened art gallery on the windy road towards Tayvallich - fabulous hand-crafted pieces by Kate, her mum and her dad, and some very talented local crafts people.
Wine, chocolate and large pots of tea. A pretty perfect weekend in all!!

|Lovely Andrew and Anne who are thinking of getting married here next year and whose tale behind Anne's unique engagement ring made me cry. Lovely. Lovely. Lovely. Special.|
