Orphans welcome at Great Glen B&B

Thats Mary on the left with the lamb she likes
This one is not camera shy
This is what orphans look like.

Minnie (as named by one of our guests children) has been abandoned by her mother Mary and is now being bottle fed by Sonia and family. She was born on the 20th and try as we might for 2 days her mother wants nothing to do with her. At the moment we have Smiley keeping her company whilst Mary is out and about with her other lamb. Great Glen B&B have now 7 lambs running wild around the place. Irma has a boy, then Dez had twins one of each, Jaz was next with 2 boys and finally Mary had twins 2 girls one of which is poor Minnie. We will keep you posted on her progress.

Great Glen B&B's new river inhabitants. No not baby nessies


Great News for three days now these beautiful creatures have been spending time in our river opposite the house. These occasional visitors are a pair of Goosanders and we think they are looking for a place to nest. The male (below) has a pink tinge to the seemingly white neck and belly, the female (above) has a striking tuft to the back of her head. we are so pleased that they have chosen Great Glen B&B for a possible nesting site








More great news. DEZ has Just given birth to twins. We have brought them out of the freezing temperatures for the night into a stable, hope they will be OK. will keep you posted and post some ahh pictures soon.
