Loch Ness at its best in "Summer Sunshine"

This summer really is turning out to be exceptional for sunshine & heat which has broken records of 122 years in June. We've had many visitors from across Europe where the weather there in places wasn't as good and they are returning home with suntans and great memories of their Scotland trip.

Once all our B&B duties were complete we have also managed to get out & enjoy the sights & scenery and drove to one of the quiet bays along Loch Ness between Invermoriston & Fort Augustus to have a chill out time and paddle and dip at the shallow waters edge.


Record breaking heat across The Highlands 32deg

After a brief dip in the weather mid June the heat has returned with high pressure across the UK and the north & west Highlands reaching record temperatures for the month of June rising to a crazy +32 deg C "The Hottest Day Ever Recorded in Scotland" !! Day after day of sunshine & blue skies now continue into July, we're certainly making the most of it and our guests have been shocked & surprised by the extreme heat !!

18 Days of Glorious Sunshine in The Highlands !!

Well that was very nice indeed !! Our guests at Serendipity B&B have just enjoyed 18 consecutive days of sunshine & warm temperatures. It must have broken records as we cannot remember a spring/summer like this where everyday has been between 22 deg to 28 deg. Our global guests have been surprised at the heat & are returning home with very good suntans !! Alas, all good things come to an end & after a heavy thunder & lightning storm over Glenmoriston the air has now cooled & it looks like the weather is again on the turn.

During the height of the good weather we managed to get out & revisit a few of our favourite local haunts like Glenelg & the Original Glenelg Ferry. Here's a couple of shots of the afternoon.

Recognition for our work @ Serendipity B&B

We've had some excellent news recently with a couple of awards for our work here at Serendipity B&B.  This month we have received notification from TripAdvisor that we have been awarded a "2018 Certificate of Excellence" which is great news & thanks to all our guests that have taken time to add such lovely kind comments, they're very much appreciated.

We were also delighted to have been initially nominated for the LGBTQ awards and even more pleased to be named as "Winner in the 2018 Rural B&B of the Year" category. Huge thanks go out for the nominations and votes during the awards & we look forward to being included in the travel guide brochure being published later this summer.

once again to all our lovely guests from around the globe.

Summer hike to touch the snow - Serendipity B&B

Over two weeks of continuous hot sunny weather, it's been fantastic for our guests who have travelled from far & wide including Canada, USA, Switzerland, Germany, France & Portugal!  They have been out exploring the best that The Highlands has to offer and when the weather has been this good it looks even better.  We also managed to get out ourselves & enjoy the local hills that surround Serendipity B&B and hiked the lower hills to grab the last few snow patches. They are fast thawing now & flowing into beautiful refreshing waterfalls.
The mountain paths are so peaceful & relaxing (once you're up there!)....A lovely few hours before heading back down to work.

The higher munro peaks still have plenty more cover but they will also thaw rapidly if this weather continues.

It's Scorchio in the Highlands...Hot week 27.1 deg

We've had an amazing week of hot sunny weather, day after day which our guests have loved! Yesterday proved to be the hottest day of the year so far for Scotland with the BBC official temperature of 27.1 deg across The Highlands. We took a short drive out through Glenshiel to Glenelg for a couple of hours to make the most of it whilst all our guests were out exploring the region.

Took plenty of photo's along the way & even managed to get one published & get a mention on the breakfast BBC weather programme.  Cracking weather, will it continue ??

That's worth celebrating !!

We still have snow views @ Serendipity B&B !!

Sunshine & showers are in the forecast this week and we have even had a couple of fresh 'dustings of snow' on the high peaks of Glenshiel & Kintail that we look at to the west. The larger pockets should still last a few more months,  in the meantime our guests can enjoy this snowy view from our garden.
