Our guests at Rhumhor have been treated to their very own SpringWatch, observing these lovely baby swallows as they have grown in their nest. They are visible from both inside and outside the house and it has been a real treat for everyone to see them as they have developed, fed constantly by a very hardworking mum and dad.
This is the third year that swallows have nested in this spot, it seems to be the ideal place for them to raise their youngsters and it means we have wildlife right on the doorstep! Above the bedroom windows we have house martins nesting and in the wood along the burn both wood peckers and herons. Bill has constructed and erected an owl box in a tree behind the house, but that has not been occupied so far. Rhumhor is a wonderful place for spotting different birds, from sea birds on the loch, the golden eagles in the hills to our little baby swallows. Come and See for yourself.
Our first bluebells of 2017 have just opened in the Easter sunshine! They herald the thousands that will soon carpet the glens of the National Park – it is a truly stunning sight and one of the many reasons to visit Scotland in late spring……
Spring has well and truly arrived on Loch Goil, the daffodils are out, the lambs are cavorting around the fields and glimpses of the local wildlife, red squirrels, seals and deer are becoming that bit easier as the length of the days increase.

We like to produce a ‘video’ to give potential guests a snapshot of Rhumhor, Loch Goil and the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. It is also a nice reminder for previous guests to look back on.
