New Bridge to Loch-side lawn

Rhumhor BridgeOur new loch-side lawn was really popular with guests last year, the perfect place to enjoy the views across Loch Goil, hold a BBQ or just sit and watch the sea birds.

However we recognised that there were access issues. Between the lawn and the road edge is a large ditch which allows water to drain from the fields behind the houses. Although grassed, the slope of ditch meant that some guests found it difficult to access the lawn, the grass could be slippery at times.

To remedy the problem, this winter, we have had a bridge constructed across the ditch which will allow all guests to cross to the loch-side easily. Work on the bridge continued this week and now we just have to add top soil, and then, in Spring, grass seed.

We can’t wait to see it finished, but in the meantime our dog Ben inspected our progress, and seemed to approve!

A ‘Must Visit’ for Rennie Mackintosh fans

Charles Renee Mackintosh

If you are a fan of Rennie Mackintosh, the Scottish architect, designer and artist, then a visit to the Hill House in Helensburgh is a must during your stay at Rhumhor on Loch Goil.

The Glasgow born Mackintosh is known around the world as one of the most creative figures of the 20th century.  His designs are seen in everything from buildings, to jewellery to clothes and even china.  One of his architectural highlights is the Glasgow School of Art, while on a hillside in Helensburgh in Argyll sits what is know as his finest domestic creation ‘The Hill House.’

The famous designer created not only the house itself but also most of the rooms, furniture and other fixtures.  This is an essential day out for anyone that loves the Mackintosh style and it is open to the public from April right through until the end of October.
