Does my bum look big in this?

The famous Black Grouse is on the hunt for ladies again This spectacular bird which can be found not far from Great Glen B&B at the RSPB reserve at Corrimony has an amazing courtship display which is not to be missed. You can arrange guided trips with the RSPB or I can point you in the right direction.

RED ALERT Jazz is about to lamb. This old Shetland ewe is preparing to give birth in this awful spring weather. lets hope she is OK

Loch Ness Monster spotted in Great Glen B&B hot tub

The best way to end a perfect birthday, in the hot tub

the monster is the one blowing the bubbles.

Party Time at Great Glen B&B (Nessie wasn't invited)

A Huge celebration BBQ party marked the birthday of Great Glen B&B's first lady Sonia Whittington. All the family were present (probably won't happen again for some time) with lots of food, drink, party tricks and family squabbles/discussions. The highlight was a short sharp shower followed by a rainbow which landed in the garden. Everyone rushed for spades to dig for the crock of gold.
Neil Whittington was so impressive with the circus tricks that Billy Smart signed him on a 3 year contract. He starts on Monday.
Hannah (she's the blonde one) flies back to London on Monday to continue her modelling career.
What can we say about the birthday girl, well she has retired to the hot tub to revive those weary muscles, you know the ones you use for lifting glasses of bubbly.

And No were not having a guess the age competition!!

Ladies now allowed to visit Urquhart castle

This one time fortress of the Scottish Highlands is now open to the fairer sex.

So make sure you visit this mysterious and haunting place when you stay with us at Great Glen B&B.

Urquhart castle was once one of the largest castles in Scotland. This dramatic stronghold overlooks the waters of Loch Ness and is surrounded by some of the most stunning scenery to be found in the highlands. Find out more at

New arrivals at Great Glen B&B Loch Ness

Two new arrivals to report here at Great Glen B&B. They are very large, very hairy, and look very dangerous (but they are harmless). They eat for Britain and leave big piles of Sh....t all over my lovely fields. What are they? Hairy cooos. The Red one is called Mhairi and the black on is called Eilidh Dubh.

This beast was the mainstay of the economy in the Scottish Highlands and Islands for many centuries. At a local level the house cow would give milk, cheese, butter, hair for weaving and (eventually) hide and leather for a host of uses. The beef from this animal is second to none.

By nature Highland cows are fairly placid animals and have a reputation to be good and attentive mothers. So if her calf is threatened she will be staunch in defending it. Her usual laid back approach to life can be cast aside in an instant as she moves quickly to use her horns, or kick out at any person or animal unwise enough to come between her and her offspring.

At Last It's Stopped Snowing & the Sun has come out

I managed to go for a walk today and took my camera to show all you guys what a fantastically beautiful place Loch Ness is.

Glad to be home now though in front of a roaring fire with a glass of wine.
