MIDGES and wee beasties: Best to keep the windows closed (locked with a key available close by) otherwise they will invade and may well bite you! Midges are usually quite small so difficult to see BUT they pack a mighty large bite! The owner usually has SMIDGE (anti midge spray) available and this can also be purchased from JANS or BOOTS Chemist in Portree. As Seaward is situated in the countryside, other wee beasties may also try to get inside through open windows or plug holes etc so I also tend to keep upturned beakers over the plug holes as well!
Mirrors: various around the room and in the en suite.
Heating etc: wall mounted oil heater (usually on for half an hour or more during the summer months around 07.30am) Turn it OFF if you prefer no heat though! Plus there is a Fan/Heater in the cupboard.
