Our logo at 60

Posted on

A couple of years ago the daughter of a family who have stayed since 1962 kindly passed on the original brochure her parents received when they booked. Although prices have changed a little since the sixties, apart from the addition of a double tracked road not much else has changed at Leckmelm.

We were quite inspired by the retro look of the brochure and with a little help from Euan at A4 print in Inverness we revisited the logo for the 21st Century and impending 60th anniversary of the business. My son Solais has been trialling designs for "Leckmelm Merch" in in 2022 we will launch a celebratory year with offers to Mark this occasion. Watch this space....

In the meantime we've developed the logo onto a new interpretative map board that will replace our old information point on the Campbellton road which gives visitors an idea of their location and also the bridleway to Strath Nimhe which is a fantastic walk either as a short route up to the Marilyn Ben Eilideach or further over the hill to Rhidorroch.

The latter route makes for a great hike (4-6 hours depending on your speed) from Leckmelm taking you along an ancient drove route down through Rhiddoroch and Glen Achall to Ullapool where you can stop for food, coffee or a pint. This is probably one of my most favourite walks, but be aware that between July and February stalking may be taking place and it's best to check the day before you go.

Just a quick line to thank you for a lovely week at Leckmelm House. Lovely house and I can't think of a better spot. The track out up the hill certainly lets us know we live in flat Lincolnshire! Lottie, our border, has actually gone home with sore paws from the walking we managed. Due to our daughters wedding we never made it to Scotland this summer but we did manage a week in Skye in March and the weather was amazing then as well. You live in paradise although I'm sure you don't have enough time to enjoy it!
