Interaction with guests
We are the owners of the Schoolhouse cottage and live next door in "Tigh Sgoile". In Gaelic, the name means "School House" and the whole building used to be the village school, in use as such from 1876 to 1980.
We are usually around in case you have any queries and would be delighted to give you recommendations about places to visit and local pubs and walks.
Other things to note
We have a small, friendly dog called Monty. He is a little white fluffy Maltese/Shitzu cross and very used to new people coming to visit, but we will of course keep him away from any guests who don't like dogs.
