Thanks again to Suzanne and Glen for a wonderful, relaxing week in Spean Bridge.
The accommodation is always top notch, clean and comfortable and has the edge over other places we stay in Scotland with nice touches such as fuel provided for the fire, a bottle of wine etc., on arrival and comfortable, spacious and warm rooms.
Help and advice is always to hand with good local knowledge.
It's helpful having the woollen mill and shops across the way in case the whisky supply dwindles, and do not worry about the main road adjacent - you do not notice it's there in our experience.
It also helps that it is at one of the major cross-roads in Lochaber and the drive to Speyside is a joy. Plenty of walking and helpful information on this as well.
There are eating places locally which Glen knows and can advise on, but we have never used them as we don't have the strength left after a day's walking or travelling around! There's a good kitchen with all the basic supplies anyway.
Finally, as a chartered building surveyor, it is really good to see a B&B or self-catering proprietor always looking after their property and buildings too.
Can't wait to go back.
The Rushton Clan.
