LARGE LOUNGE/ DINING AREA with log fire, solid maple floor and pine panelling. There is an excellent sound system (bring some CD's with you!), and of course all the windows have fabulous panoramic views of the mainland. There is a small library and loads of games, jigsaws etc.. The centrally sited fireplace divides the lounge area from the dining area, and the whole room has proved extremely versatile for the various study groups, school and university parties, and other special interest groups that have used the building. For the various study groups that come here we have an overhead projector, flipcharts, whiteboads and dvd player. Behind the lounge there is a small LABORATORY, with bench space for 8, containing a microscope and other field equipment. We are slowly building up a display of Geological specimens found by visitors.
There is a broadband connected computer in the main lounge, and free wi-fi throughout the building
The KITCHEN is superbly equipped with a large gas cooker, fridge, freezer, microwave, toaster, blender etc. There is a serving hatch through to the dining area, and a separate pantry with loads of shelving.
The ENTRANCE LOBBY has ample coat hanging and shoe space and in wet weather it is kept toasting hot by the 'dump' heaters from our own small hydro-electric plant, which also heats the water
There is a LAUNDRY ROOM with a commercial sized washing machine and tumble dryer, a shower and 2 toilets (one equipped for disabled people).
Moving up to the FIRST FLOOR, there are three bedrooms of various sizes - one twin bedded room, one 6 bedded (3 bunks), and one with 8 beds in 4 bunks. Each has its one wash basin, and down the rear corridor are 2 showers and 2 toilets.
The TOP FLOOR has two bedrooms, each with 3 single beds. There is another shower and toilet on this floor.
There is full central heating in the building, and plenty of hot water.
