A short walk from The Spoons…

February 1st, 2010

Our neighbour Cailean MacLean took this beautiful photo a couple of weeks ago from Aird Bernisdale, looking across Loch Snizort. It’s just a leisurely 10 minute walk from The Spoons to this view and the seals are often to be seen basking on the rocks. Guests can enjoy a stroll down there before coming back to the luxury of The Spoons Breakfast!
