Snow and Sunshine!
Here at Appletree Cottage in Croftamie, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park we're had our first dusting of snow of the year. Beautiful sunshine, snow on the hills and roads passable - that's how we like it!
Few cars were out today - though quite a few walkers. We had an excellent lunch at the But&Ben in Croftamie Village. Opened just over a year ago the owner lovingly restored the former pub known as the Wayfarers. The But & Ben is a hugely welcoming change serving excellent food throughout the day and with occasional steak nights. Well worth a look: www.thebutandben.co
In this weather everything just looks fantastic. Warm when the sun is out but a little chillier when it goes behind a cloud.
However one assuredly warm place is Appletree Cottage which has proved very popular with guests over the last couple of months with its underfloor heating, wood burning stove and fantastic panoramic views.
