'The Camerons Tea Room and Farm Shop' opening soon.........

All the Camerons worked very hard at the weekend to get the Tea Room and Farm Shop almost ready to open for business. Advertising banners have now been printed and are ready to be placed in situ.
Three specially commissioned light units made from Red Deer Stags antlers are now lighting up the Tea Room area and look fantastic.
The local signwriter has been very busy inside and outside the Tea Room.
There is plenty of relaxed seating at various tables and a comfy cosy couch with coffee table by the large picture window.
The shop area is starting to be well stocked with food provisions as well as local crafts.

Fridge and freezers are soon to be installed for cold and chilled products.
Various colourful paintings and prints by local artists are on display.
The Tea Room and Farm Shop is just a short pleasant stroll for guests who are staying at Camerons Holiday Cottage.

Charity cycle ride round Loch Ness....'Etape Loch Ness'

Today the weather was quite fair and dry which was good news for 'Etape Loch Ness'. This is a new cycle event giving competitors the chance to cycle 67 miles around Loch Ness, offering a fantastic challenge along with stunning scenery. The 1,250 places for the event sold out very quickly and much money was raised for various charities, mostly MacMillan cancer support. The event started and finished in Inverness and roads were closed around the loch for a time. The first males to cross the finishing line had a time of about 2 hours 55 mins and the first female across the finishing line was from Aberdeen with a time of 3 hours 26 minutes. We watched as they whizzed past and they all seemed to be enjoying the new event.
