When you enter my house you will be made to feel at home. I am very friendly and will make you feel welcome. Nothing is too much trouble and if you have a special requirement then I will do my best to acommodate you if you let me know in advance. The house is warm as we have underfloor heating and an extra heater is in the bedroom. I am very child friendly and have a large travel cot which would suit child up to around 2 years old. The bathroom has a bath and a shower and it is directly next to your room which is private for you. Shampoo soap and bubble bath are provided and towels of course.
Apart from your bedroom and bathroom there is a guest sitting room for you to chill out and relax. There is a sitting area outside on decking area where you can sit if weather permits. There is plenty parking on the grounds of the house.
Interaction with guests
I will be available if you are needing any help during your stay just ask. I will provide my phone number should I need to go out at any point, but I am not usually far away. I am interested in the country you are from and I like to talk to my guests and get a feel for their culture.
The area is quiet and peaceful with few houses. My house is surrounded by lovely hills and trees and view of River Lochy.
There is ample parking in my driveway. If you are not coming by car the nearest public transport is 3 miles at Spean Bridge where there is a train station. If you were getting the train from Glasgow it stops at this station. There are buses from Spean Bridge to Fortwilliam and other areas. There is a taxi driver in Gairlochy but only available at certain times. There are places in Fortwilliam where you can hire a car.
Other things to note
I ask guests if they have any food allergies or special diet and I can provide a suitable breakfast for them if I know in advance. I serve a full Scottish breakfast which consists of sausage bacon black pudding haggis mushrooms potato scone egg and tomato fresh juice toast with several spreads. I have special foods for different diets for example gluten and dairy free. If you are a non meat eater I have a variety of cereals fresh fruit yogurt or porridge but please let me know so I can have them for you.
I want my guests to feel at home and relax during their stay. If any of the guests smoke I would ask that they don't smoke in the house but in designated smoking area. I would like guests to show respect for this quiet area. Take your shoes off at the front door only if they are dirty otherwise I don't mind.
Hi I joined airbnb at the end of March this year and I have been pretty full up since. I have lived in Scotland all my life but I have stayed in the Highlands for around 30 years and I still think it is the lovliest place to stay surrounded by hills trees water and greenery. I am a warm and friendly person and like to interact with others and have a genuine interest in people. I love music couldn't live without. I also love watching films especially dramas and I love going to the theatre. I like good food and love cakes and chocolate I also read a lot of books of varying kind. I do a lot of DIY and like to up-cycle furniture and make it unique. My dream job would be an interior designer as I can visualise what a room could look like when decorated and the right things placed around the room. I am very family orientated and I love my grandchildren. Children are very welcome in this house. My favourite places to visit are Devon and Cornwall and York. I love Valdermosa in Mallorca. For city breaks I go to London and my favourite part is Camden as I love the market the people comedy and jazz clubs.
I make a hearty Scottish breakfast and try my best to accommodate special diets or food allergies.
If you chose to stay with me I can guarantee I will make you feel welcome and at home
