Rather than renting the house out over Hogmanay we had a little fundraiser involving lots of friends and a party in the barn. It was well below minus 5 even during the day and as low as minus 15 by night so Inshriach became a winter wonderland, layer upon layer of frost grew on every branch and we got some curling in on the loch. On Hogmanay itself nearly 60 people danced reels in their coats to a backdrop of 1970s zombie movies. Thank you so much to everyone who made it north, you made it amazing fun and much better photos of all of the above, mostly courtesy of Helen, are on this flickr page.
Dan Light is an old friend and esteemed blogger, he was indirectly responsible for the cinema now installed in the barn and has written this lovely piece in anticipation of his family holiday here in February, I had better tidy up the barn before the Pixar marathon.
In the run up to Christmas we also had this little piece in the Evening Standard.
