Newsletter 5 (October 2016)

Dear Subscriber,
 
Welcome to the Room in the Wood October Newsletter. 
Room in the Wood

Our builders arrived on 11 October and started to prepare the ground for the Room in the Wood ………and we’re excited!
 
The Room in the Wood is projected to be handed over to us by April 2017, although we’re hoping for an earlier completion date.

Dining room / Kitchen extension
 
Our builders have also started to prepare for our new dining room (which is where we will provide breakfast for our Room in the Wood visitors) and our new kitchen (where the breakfast will be prepared). The timescale for completion is also April 2017.

Tree management and new pathway
 
We have been having our delightful trees shaped, refined, thinned, and generally spruced up (if that is the right expression?). Also, with the advice and inspiration of Andrew Peters, a new pathway has been designed to link the Room in the Wood to Mossfield House. The path will find the easiest way up the gradient from the Room with some stone steps where necessary.
 
Booking for 2017

As you appreciate from the details above, we’re unable to show you the finished Room in the Wood at the moment. But we can tell you the Room will be designed for two people (with a comfortable bed), with a shower-room/toilet and porch area (plus drying facility). The décor will be sympathetic to the woodland setting (representative of woodland on Skye). There will be a television and wifi available, plus tea/coffee making facilities. 

If you would like to stay in the Room in the Wood in 2017, we expect the Room will be available from Saturday 3 June 2017. The price will be £145 for one night (plus breakfast), and £135 for each consecutive night and breakfast thereafter.  There will be a discount for John Muir Trust members. 

To make a booking, please phone us on 01478 650 378.
Did you know?....

There’s a Skye Book Festival each year, based at the Aros Arts Centre, Portree. We went to four events this year and really enjoyed the performance of the authors sharing something of themselves and their books. The Skye Book Festival 2017 will be held from 31 August until 2 September 2017. Go to www.skyebookfestival.co.uk for further details.

New publication

A new and comprehensive guide to the Isle of Skye has been produced which is, in our view, by far the best of its kind regarding Skye. The book is called ‘The Isle of Skye Guide Book’ by Charles Tait (Tait Publishing Limited). The price is £12.95. It follows the same format of ‘The Orkney Guide Book’ by the same author and publisher.

Next Newsletter 

The next edition of our Newsletter will be circulated in mid December 2016. 

Best wishes
