Our 7th Christmas at Rhumhor

1st Christmas Decoration
This week I’ve been unpacking the Christmas decorations here at Rhumhor. Decorating the house for the festive season is one of my favourite activities at the house, I always find Rhumhor truly magical when it is ‘dressed’ for Christmas.

As I unwrapped ornaments I uncovered a memento from our very first Christmas, a decoration given to us by our first Christmas guests. I still find it hard to believe that was seven years ago!

Now as we complete our decorating we look forward to welcoming our guests this week to spend their 2017 Christmas at Rhumhor and we wish all guests, past, Christmas and future the very best time at Christmas.

Merry Christmas from Bill and Martine, Carrick Castle, Loch Goil x


SpringWatch at Rhumhor

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.
