This time last year when we wrote our Christmas blog we were knee-deep in our drying room project and hostel redecoration.
Fast forward 12 months to December 2017 and this all seems like a distant memory. The drying room has been in operation since springtime and we put our paintbrushes down early on in the season too. During our busy summer season we have enjoyed receiving compliments from guests on our new facilities and the bright, modern feel to the hostel.
This was also the first year since opening Saddle Mountain Hostel that we took an extended holiday. If you read our last blog you’ll know that we visited Patagonia in South America in November and had fun trekking in some of its iconic national parks.
Whilst it doesn’t look like it’s going to be a white Christmas this year, some early season snow certainly provided a festive feel for members of the Argyll Mountaineering Club who had their annual Christmas weekend with us at the start of December.
We are spending a few days with family over the Christmas period before the first of our New year guests arrive on 30th December. We’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas.
