Scarinish Harbour

Whilst out shopping at the Co-Op this afternoon, we simply had to cross the road and take a few pictures at beautiful Scarinish Harbour. It was a pleasant 14 degrees with the seas turning a nice blue green colour. 

For those people who haven’t been to Tiree before, Scarinish is the main village, where the post office, bank, Co-op and police station is based. Not far from the pier, it’s around 15 minutes to get back to the cottage.

So Peaceful. The only sounds, waves and birds.

Cottage Entertainment

We’ve been thinking how else we could make your stay as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. Entertainment is always a good thing and those who have been to Struthan Cottage before will know there are hundreds of movies and dozens of books and games to choose from.

We’ve topped up the games cabinet with some new fun kids games and jigsaws. We’ve also provided some of the latest movies and now introducing an Amazon Alexa, 3rd Generation Echo Dot to the cottage!

This small circular desktop device is intuitive and comes with holiday guest access to over 20 MILLION songs! Create your own holiday play list by adding your favourite songs by voice command. e.g “Alexa, add ‘Atlantic Roar’ by Skerryvore to my holiday playlist” and it will! You can ask it the time, when the tides are, the news, the Tiree weather forecast, find phone numbers on the island and much, much more! Instructions for suggested voice commands are in the welcome pack in the cottage on your arrival. Not your thing? Simply unplug it. Settings will be remembered for the next guest.

Relaxing on a Sunday

Sweeping up done outside! There’s nothing like sitting inside cosy, beautiful Struthan Cottage on a Sunday afternoon, sipping coffee, nibbling toast and relaxing…..a hundred miles away from the stresses of working life on the mainland. Work a distant memory. Bliss!

Improvement Work

Our Spring maintenance visit is going well!

In the bathroom we replaced the ceiling lights with completely sealed LED units. Not only more energy efficient, but there are no vents in those new units meaning no draughts can come in! The bathroom is completely draught proof (which on a windy Tiree day like today is apparent). New bathmats too. Toasty!

Staying with the bathroom, we noticed the mixer tap on the shower was not providing the temperature it should be, so we’ve completely replaced the shower. The shower is powerful, can now be better regulated and the water for assurance, is piping hot!

The previous 2 guests mentioned some small issues with getting the front door to lock properly in the porch. The lock was taken apart this morning and being 12 years old, was pretty rusty. SO…we’ve completely changed the door lock for a brand new, different lock and replaced the door handles both inside and out. Working a treat now.

We’ve also replaced duvets and pillows with brand new bedding. In the kitchen we’ve replaced tin opener, scissors, pots, new knives and chopping boards.

Ensuring the cottage is clean, freshened up, in tip top shape and everything in working order, before your holiday is of primary importance to us.
