Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is the helicopter in this photo real?
A: Yes, the pier is mentioned as a landing site in a couple of flying guides. We get quite a lot of helicopters landing and even more passing over the sea loch in front of us. Connel airport is around 15 miles away and is a popular refuelling point. The helicopter in the photo phoned ahead and said when they were going to land and so we were ready with a camera.

Q: Are dogs welcome?
A: Yes, well behaved dogs are welcome in our accommodation. It helps to let us know when you book. Sometimes depending on the property we ask for a nominal charge to help cleaning. In the Hotel dogs are not allowed in the restaurant area but they are allowed in the Captain's bar which also serves meals.
