Bed breakfast and banter

When we decided to run a Bed and Breakfast micro business from our home in Kirkhill House we had no ideas other than 'what would make us, ourselves, look for and enjoy in a few nights' stay at a seaside Wester-Ross locale such as this?' Comfort and cleanliness yes, quality breakfast of course, warmth of welcome definitely, (although that has not always been our experience elsewhere). So these things are what we set out to put on offer.

What we did not reckon on was the effect of our early mentions on Googlemaps and then TripAdvisor and finally our website . From the beginning we have enjoyed all the business we could really handle. Of course the workload has proven correspondingly heavy. How often have we wished - well, Dee wished, for it is she who takes ninety percent of the strain - that we had cottoned on to this many years earlier. Young and fit is what your really need to be to run a B&B!

We have enjoyed visits from people of almost all the European countries plus Brazil, China, Japan, Cnada and probably others that I cannot right now bring to mind.  Oh, and about a quarter of them have been UK. Almost all have been interesting to the point where you would be pleased to come across them and chat in a pub or someone else's party. They have added a real dimension of pleasure to our daily lives. Last week a couple of Austrian ladies stayed here and have now sent up this photograph. The shot on which they insisted so that even camera shy Dee had to conform!
