Somewhat like Railway young ones we arrived in total darkness amid a galeforce storm. Mrs Viney had forgotten to light our fire too but we soon had the woodburner going. Wonderful few days in a truely beautiful an element of the globe. The cottage is very well-appointed and comfortable if somewhat nippy inside rooms. We are keen campers accustomed to cold noses but be aware there is absolutely no heating upstairs. Thank-you for sharing the Applecross peninsula, we love it.
