New Gift and Craft Shop Opens on Loch Goil
We are delighted to see PineTrees Giftshop newly opened in Lochgoilhead. It is located next to the village post office, opposite the village car park. The shop has stunning views of Loch Goil, however it is worth tearing your eyes away from the vista to look at all the lovely gifts and crafts on display. Most of the items are made locally, proving what a talented bunch of people live and work in the glen!
There is fine handmade silver jewellery, beautiful paintings, cards, candles and craft items. There are also plenty of souvenir Lochgoilhead items and some great books on history and walks in the local area.
We think this will be a real hit with our guests as it is the ideal place to buy souvenirs of your stay and also some amazing and unique gifts for family and friends back home.
Our best wishes to Pinetrees – we know you are going to be a huge success.
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. Whether it is putting up the little tree in the dining room or the big Christmas Arch in the family room it always feels exciting.
A Christmas Memory
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!
We feel privileged to have been able to offer Rhumhor as a wonderful home for families to celebrate their Christmas, and we always love hearing how they have enjoyed the decorations and the special festive feel the house has. Our very first Christmas guests came from Glasgow and Spain and spanned three generations and we are glad to know they still have lovely memories of their stay here.
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
