My lodge at Dunkeld

Well here it is!



As I said, it would be ideal for Pope Benedict as a summer retreat. It is hidden in the trees on the banks of the River Tay. The two bedrooms are downstairs - and the living area is upstairs with the most wonderful view.



There is even a substantial balcony where the Holy Father could appear for the Sunday Angelus. Sadly, I only own the lodge for one week a year!

I'm off to Yorkshire tomorrow for a few days to visit family - but as my stepfather has an iMac, I'll try and post a brief blog each day. The new subject will be - 'delightful views around Ham.'

I have just found your blog, it is lovely. Why do you own the lodge for only one week a year?

Peter Simpson said...

Basically I own the lodge for just one week a year because that is all I can afford! The lodge is a time-share. Fifty different people own a different week of the year. I own Week 30 (end of July) and so for this one week of the year the lodge is mine.

I find the arrangment suits me very well.

Thank you for your compllimentary comment!
