Scottish diaries. call that an exhibition.???

Hi,  we have often passed the sign at Spean bridge advertising the gift shop, whisky shop and weaving exhibition and I think that we visited this 20 odd years ago at werent impressed.

However, always willing to give things a second chance , we pulled in yesterday to use the toilets and look at the exhibition.  After getting over the problem of finding that the taps weren't actually attached to the sink ! We had a look in the shop and found some sheep shaped shortbread which simply had to be bought but we failed to find the exhibition until hubby looked through the windows to find that right at the back of the gift shop there was a loom set up in the corner.  That was it, still disappointed :-(

As the weather was still iffy, we had a drive round and ended up at Glen coe mountain cafe for a bite to eat. We noticed that in addition to the electric hookups for motor homes and the small camp site they now have microlodges. A bit like hobbit houses with two single beds and a double at the back. At £50 per night and sleeping four people they make an interesting alternative to camping.
