Kate's Cottage (1/2)

Our digs for the most of the time we spent on Canna. A traditional Scottish 2-room "but 'n' ben" with an outhouse toilet. The solar panels charged a car battery that allowed for electric light and an electric shower. There was a socket in the outhouse that we ran an extension cable into the house from so we could watch DVD movies on the laptop when we were trapped inside by the inevitable storms and gales. Notice how the tree outside points in the direction of the prevailing wind. Common in these parts.
