One of the things that attracted me to the idea of living in Alavik Lodge for six weeks was the view. When I saw the location on the map and a picture of the glass gable end that forms one end of the living room, I new that we would enjoy making this house our temporary home. Sitting on the couch I am now looking out on Loch Slapin and the snow capped Cuillin ridge. I have not seen the Cuillins this early before, so I cannot make a comparison, but going by some recent pictures from Ben Nevis and Glencoe on Flickr, I was expecting more snow on the tops.
Tricia & Hans, the owners of this house, said that the view from the living room would change all the time and we have experienced that already. When we arrived yesterday afternoon, the Cuillins were hardly visible and now at 9:30 the sun is playing on the ridge and on the top of Blaven.
