Happy New Year

I was watching this weather coming in this morning. A few minutes later we had lots of hail. Also some thunder, snow on the hills and of course some windy weather!

We had a high tide that covered the pier over Christmas. This photo was taken an hour and a half after the highest point, with seaweed all over the road again.

The owners of the Taynuilt Hotel have gone into receivership last September, and unfortunately there appears to be no interested parties. Although the group are in administration, the Taynuilt Hotel was trading profitably. I have therefore initiated a Community buyout of the hotel to avoid it closing, as its an essential part of the community and for visitors to the village. There is a lot of interest in pursuing this option, and I now have an active group of 15 who are canvassing further. We have decided to look at a shares company structure, either as a co-operative, a community interest company or a standard shares company. This will hopefully give the opportunity to raise the capital. Our next meeting is on the 2 February while I dig further into company structures and set up a business plan.
The best wishes for the New Year,
