The picnic basket proved a real bonus as we used it on the beach at Garenin in the evenings. Check out the sunsets on Garenin beach. The sun dropped at about 9.30pm each night and was a really magical time. One night the mist rolled in very quickly as and quickly disappeared next day and we were back to glorious sunshine. The picnic basket is in the shed for guests to use.
The permanent daylight made the days seem very long and it was hard to work out the time. One morning I found myself out with the dog at 4.50am thinking it was morning. We both went back to bed briefly. I had put blackout blinds on two bedroom windows but not on the third so i will recifiy that on my next visit.
The wonderful beaches of Dalmore and Dalbeag just a few miles from the house. There is a new gallery at Dalbeag and the owners have put seats around the headland for people to sit and enjoy the sounds of the sea and the seabirds. It's a very calming place. The waterlilies on the loch at Dalbeag are magical and Dalmore is so expansive you could walk on it all day.
