I realise that my posts about our new property in Strathpeffer may seem to have nothing at all to do with 'Skye Calling', so I apologise to blog readers who come here to read about the Isle of Skye. However, this blog is about the lives of Sue and I, and some of what we do in our new life after relocating to live on Skye - so of course, our venture into property ownership off the island is a very major a part of our lives just now.
In case anyone is wondering - we don't plan to ever live permanently in Strathpeffer, but the cottage will be a wonderfully located holiday home for us, and we will probably holiday-let it as well, if we can find someone to take on the turn-rounds.
Today, I am playing catch-up with my last post, and I offer a few telephone-photos of Strathpeffer village. I promise I will take my proper camera on future visits, and might then produce some slightly better images. But for those who have been waiting....
|The Old Bakery is the white building on the left.|
The road only serves a few houses, so there is very little passing traffic.
|The large building on the right is Cromartie House.|
The Old Bakery stands behind it.
The shops at the front were once the bakery shop and tea rooms
|Strathpeffer Square - car parking and shops.|
The large building beyond is The Highland Hotel
Shops include a general store, Post Office and pharmacy
|From opposite The Square - Strathpeffer Hotel (behind the hedge),|
Cromartie House beyond.
|Strathpeffer Spa Pavilion|
Fully restored, and now a busy music and theatre venue,
also hosting weddings
Beautiful Victorian villas and lots of trees!
