Short weekend self catering break. A guest writes.

Anthony and his partner had a three day weekend in November at one of these cottages near Glencoe. He wrote:

We had a great long weekend. It's hard being back at work but at least the sun is shining.
We tried to go up to the Pap of Glencoe on Saturday. We got a bit lost due to the lack of a path, it got very boggy, and after about 90 minutes we realised it was going to take a long time to get to the top and back. We didn't want to risk losing the light so headed back after a while. We may well have gone the wrong way.
Weather was decent, on Saturday but poor on Sunday, rain most of the day. We slowly headed out to the Ardnamurchan peninsula as far as Salen, up to Lochailort, then back via Glenfinnan.
Didn't manage to get all the way to the end of the Peninsula because we left the cottage quite late and it gets dark so early at this time of year - next time! We stopped a lot for strolls and photo opportunities when the rain eased up a bit, and just to soak up the views and sounds.
Such beautiful and untouched countryside - just how we like it. On Monday we wandered up Duror Hill. Probably a bit less than two hours up and back in the boggy conditions and not rushing. Stunning views, and the weather gods looked down favourably on us by sending us sunshine with dramatic rain and clouds in the distance.
What a great way to end the weekend.
