Happy Christmas Wishes

After Poor old Gruff died last Winter, Gus was lost without him. So we got two little Pygmy goats to keep him company in early spring. They’re so cute. Gus was shivering with cold earlier this month and was off his food, so John bought him a dapper tartan jacket. Now he’s much happier and eating normally.

The recent cold weather caused a few burst pipes and three showers had to be replaced as the ice had completely damaged the fittings. John had to sort that lot out. Then he had to hire a JCB to clear the snow from the lane here and from the lodges, so it was piled up in huge mountains.

We now have an online booking system, so you can select dates, book and pay online (this is for 6 of our lodges only). Of course if you’d rather talk to me, I’d be delighted to help you out too. The VAT increase won’t affect you at all (only me … moan, groan), as our prices were set well before we knew about an increase in VAT.

We were very busy this year at Easter, Summer, and October. We’ve taken quite a few bookings for Easter 2011, and our Summer weeks are filling up nicely. The ‘Staycation’ promises to be in fashion for some time to come.

We’re busy for New Year as usual, but we still have some availability for Christmas.  The pistes at Glenshee and  Aviemore are fabulous already.  So for all you Winter visitors: bring your salopettes.
