Opening Soon

Minnie’s has been closed for a few weeks while Duncan MacGregor Joinery has been busy turning old cupboards and unused spaces into ensuites.

I am delighted to say the en suites are almost ready just need a lick of paint and some flooring. Hope to be opening again soon after 20th February.16196046_1238593989558190_2162650428504956688_n

This winter I plan to open a small kitchenette which will be available for guests and will be handy over the winter when there are not so many delicious local restaurants open.

Website is all updated now and you should be able to book instantly through airbnb via the website now. If you prefer to book by email please do so.

Narcissus

Skye is looking beautiful today, The Snowdrops and Daffodils are blooming. The sky is blue with a few clouds. All the Cafes and restaurants are now starting to open for the season and there are lots of people around already. Perfect day for a walk with maybe a  few coffee and lunch stops in between. Plenty of choice wherever you go for tea,coffee and lunch.

 

narcissus

“In Greek mythology, Narcissus was a hunter  known for his beauty. He was the son of the river god Cephissus and nymph Liriope He was proud, in that he disdained those who loved him. Nemesis noticed this behaviour and attracted Narcissus to a pool, where he saw his own reflection in the water and fell in love with it, not realizing it was merely an image. Unable to leave the beauty of his reflection, Narcissus lost his will to live. He stared at his reflection until he died. Narcissus is the origin of the term narcissism, a fixation with oneself and one’s physical appearance” wikipedia

Perfect Skye Morning

The Sun was shining this morning on Skye. Perfect day for a walk. When you come up to Skye always remember to be prepared and stay safe. There is plenty of advice out there to help you to decide what you need to bring and what you need to know before venturing out to sample the delights of the fine scottish hills.

Remember that the local mountain rescue are volunteers and risk their lives in extreme weather to rescue many people from the Cuillins and beyond. In my hall next to the Information you will find a donation box so please give generously to support SMRT.
