What’s new in 2011?
20 January 2011
Far from hunkering down by the fire for the winter (which, admittedly, has been tempting at times), we've been keeping ourselves busy here on Tanera with all sorts of things.
Firstly there are a couple of new features on the website this year...we’ve added an Availability Calendar so that you can see at a glance whether your favourite cottage is free at your favourite time of year. And one rainy afternoon Lizzie got out her crayons and sketched a map of Tanera which will be handy for people who are unfamiliar with the Island.
There’s also a ‘Tanera in the Press’ page where we can show off all the nice things that people have been writing about us, or even the nice things we’ve been writing about ourselves! Lizzie is enjoying writing her column for the Scottish Islands Explorer magazine, describing the highs (and occasional lows) of life on the Island through the seasons of this year.
But it hasn't all been websiting; there are other new things for 2011 too...
...well, many of our stalwart creative and active courses are still running this summer: Willow Weaving with Jane Wilkinson, NorWest Sea Kayaking with Jules Macleod, Wild Tiles with Jan Kilpatrick, and Bridge House Art with Eleanor White. But we also have a few NEW courses this year... two Flora, Fauna and Foraging courses (a weekend in May and a week in September) with local ecologist Viv Halcrow; another Bridge House Art course with Kitty Jones; a Writers’ Retreat with Mandy Haggith of Top Left Corner and a Sketch Book art course with Rowena Birkett-Jones. Lots to look forward to for the spring, summer and autumn months.
We were quite proud the our courses had a mention in January's Coast magazine - have a look at the new 'Tanera in the Press' page for details.
But in the meantime, we are working on various little developments on the Island, which we’ll tell you about as they happen...
