Broadband issues

We- the whole of Lochaline, not just the Gaelic Rose!- are having real problems with BT broadband. The problem has been ongoing since Christmas but is getting worse if anything. Apparently there is a capacity issue which generally speaking means it is very hard to download/upload anything and sometimes even sending and receiving emails is a bit dodgy!! As you can imagine, especially living where we do, internet access is now pretty much vital to most peoples functionality- especially if trying to run a business. Many people are up in arms (including us) trying to get BT to address the problem, until something is sorted please bare with us. Do still send emails but if you have not received a reply in the usual 7-10 days please give us a ring 01967 421714, 07909 923771 or 07778965618.
Thanks for your patience.

Merry Christmas

We’d just like to say thank you to everyone who has come with us this year on the Gaelic Rose. The weather this year has left a little bit to be desired- here’s hoping to a lot more sunshine next year! Regardless of what the weather does we now have a new reflex heater in the sleeping accommodation and radiators in the lounge to keep us toasty!
Hope to see yo all again next year or very soon.
If you haven’t organised a dive trip yet for 2016 we have the weekends May 14/15th and 21st/22nd available and also 15/16th October and 22/23rd October and 5/6th November.
All weekends can be extended to 3 or 4 days. £90 per person per day.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Best Wishes
Bob and Nicki

Thank you Lee

Just a quick note to wish Lee well. He is leaving the Gaelic Rose at the end of the season to turn his hand to land based ventures. Lee has worked for us for many years, he joined us as Cook and Crew but over the last couple of seasons he has been our Skipper. We would like to thank him for all his hard work and wish him well in his future.
