Autumn time brought visitors to the area, some new, who enjoyed the spectacular colours that Speyside offers. After the last holiday visitors we were glad to be able to help out 2 local families with a longer let. Then our usual Christmas and New Year guests had great fun at local events, the Nethy Bridge Torchlight Procession at New Year with Dance and Fireworks till the wee hours! There was plenty snow on the Cairngorm Mountains, but our roads stayed dry and black down here. January was mild which allowed us to put in a new bench top in the Bothy kitchen, sink and splash back. We had our first snow in February, but not enough to stop us putting on a new Front door on the Bothy! All looking fresh and lovely for spring, then we learnt of the COVID-19 Pandemic. This took us into Lockdown, and everyone was ‘staying at home’ to STAY SAFE. Our Chalets were closed till end of July 2020. The Squirrels kept us amused playing ‘chase’ in the garden!
