Wolfburn Whisky Yay…  I won a prize to visit Wolfburn Whisky Distillery! On World Whisky Day, I bought a bottle of the very new and young Wolfburn Single Malt Whisky at our local specialist off Licence J A Mackay in Thurso, and was entered into a pize draw!  A big surprise and so lovely to hear that i had won!  And my prize…  A Whisky Tour for four at Wolfburn Distillery, I was delighted and invited our super neighbours to join us.
our tour… our tour…
Oranges & lemons… It’s that cosy time of year, when I love to make marmalade.  Seville oranges are in abundance, and while they’re not quite as sweet and juicy as other oranges, they’re the best for making tangy marmalade.  And so, locating the jam pan at the back of the cupboard…
here we go… here we go…
5th January 2018 Feathered friends The RSPB regularly collect data on the number of different species of birds that visit gardens throughout the UK, through the Big Garden Birdwatch Program.  An hour is spent on the day, counting the highest number seen at any one time, this ensures birds aren’t counted twice, if they should fly away and return a moment later.  Here’s a glimpse of a few of our own garden visitors….
come take a peek… come take a peek…

        Weyland and Lynne enjoying a little     sunshine on the Nile, April 2017
A little about us, and a very warm welcome to you. We so love to meet you and have welcomed guests from over 30 countries to our Highland home, that looks out across heather moors to the peaks of Sutherland. We bought the Auld Post Office in a derelict condition in 1995, with no running water, no electricity and not much of a roof! Weyland always wanted to renvoate an old property and fortunately, he has now fulfilled his dream! Chatting about our retirement while on holiday in India, we thought we’d like to open our home for guests to have bed and breakfast. The house wasn’t quite big enough, and Weyland sketched plans for an extenstion in the sand! We felt it was important for our guests to have privacy, and to come and go as they please. And so, two en-suite guest rooms were added, each with French doors to the garden and a private front entrance. We feel it works for our guests and for us too.  We interact as much as our guests want us to, and we all enjoy our own privacy. Although we like furry friends, we have no family pets, just the happy hens in the garden. We like to travel ourselves and learn a little about other cultures.   A special trip for us was visiting a school in Dhampus, high up in the Himalayas, it was so moving when the children burst into song, singing the Nepalese National Anthem. On a cycling trip across Turkey, when everything we carried was in the pannias on our bikes.  We learned to pack minimally!   Although knowing that we needed everything including the kitchen sink!   Our ‘bathroom’ was a toolbox mounted on the back of one of the bikes, and the ‘kitchen’ on the other! The kindness of people on both these trips overwhelmed us.  They weren’t holidays, they were travel experiences, and we learned to recognise the difference. We believe our own experiences help us to understand a little more about the needs of others when far away from home.  If we have it, you can be sure we’ll share it.
