After a very stormy February, March is definitely feeling a bit more like spring. It is lovely to see the crocuses out and the grass starting to going green, although quite often the weather does this – just as you think it’s spring we are plunged back into winter with a few inches of snow!
Staying with winter, the ski centres have been having some fantastic days, and we have had ski mountaineers out on our hill reporting good conditions and great skiing.
Janet one of our pedigree shorthorn cows has had twins!
What do we name them? For once it was easy, Fiona who works with us, her mum is Janet and she has a sister called Shirley
Say Hello to Fiona and Shirley!
After a very mild New Year winter has returned! with a ‘skinch’ of snow – more than a skiff but less than an inch!
The photos were all taken in December, we have had amazing weather it has been frosty and calm, with the most amazing sunrises and sunsets.
The last photo was taken just as the light was fading and Ewan was still working in the fank, you can just make out the sheep.
Fingers crossed we finally say goodbye to Covid
Wishing everyone a prosperous and happy New Year

This morning was beautiful it really felt like summer had arrived which is very welcome after the very cold and wet spring. The first photo is looking out over the farm with gorse in the foreground is has been amazing this year with bright yellow flowers and a very strong coconut aroma. In the one below you can just make out pockets of snow still lingering on the Dalwhinnie hills. The other photos are of Fluke and Cullen who are waiting for their breakfast to be delivered!
We still have a few weeks available in June in Allt Bronach and limited availability in July and August, please getting touch if you have any questions. If Covid -19 rears its ugly head again and holidays have to be cancelled be assured that any money paid will be refunded in full.
