Boo’s Bark – tips for travellers

As the summer season comes to end, the trees are starting to change colour and autumn is here. It is a time for reflection. There is one idea that is very obvious to Sue and I.

Most of all of our guests seem to be in a hurry to get round Scotland – Edinburgh – The Highlands – Inverness – Loch Ness – Skye – Harry Potter (Glenfinnan Viaduct) Inveraray – or the other way round. It seems that they are moving to the next stop before catching breath!

It is not great distances between stops in terms of miles/kms but the roads are narrow and can be single track in places. Progress can be slow and it can mean that too much time is spent in the car.

Our advice for travellers to Scotland is to stay in an area for at least two nights and use it as a base. For example from Powdermills Bed and Breakfast you go south and visit Arran, Bute, or The Mull of Kintyre or alternatively travel north to Oban, Glen Coe or Fort William. All these can be day trips from Furnace.

So, future guests and visitors, take your time and relax when visiting our beautiful country.
