Swap report - lovely long weekend in the Scottish Highlands
Loch Linnhe in the Scottish Highlands "We had a wonderful time at this lovely couple's second family home near the village of Glencoe. Trish and Neil have obviously spent a great deal of time and effort making this a very welcoming cottage. The gardens were great, even in the snow, with rope swings, a bridge across the burn, and a see saw for small children. Wildlife is in abundance, with bird feeders at every window, most recognisable being the little robin who likes bread from the table outside the kitchen. This was our first swap and we couldn't have hoped for a better experience. Thanks again."  (Fiona, Glasgow, Scotland)
