Please call Joy so she can call our plumber.
When things don’t work
If the power goes off in part of the house, you are welcome to check the circuit breakers. They are in the cupboard under the shelves on the right in the dining room/family room.
If the same circuit trips repeatedly, please unplug any appliance you think may have caused the problem. Call or text Joy and she will decide whether to call an electrician.
Please report any power cuts: there aren’t many people here so the Electricity Board may not know. The new national Freephone number is 105 or call 0800 300 999.
You can track the status of the power cut on ssen.co.uk/PowerCuts
There are emergency lamps on the dresser in the dining / family room. We check them every week, but please recharge them if you use them.
Ben can provide a camping gas stove, hot drinks etc, if the power cut continues. Come round to the main house (second green door in the lighthouse yard) or ring 07771702089.
There should be enough oil to heat the cottage during your stay. If the boiler or heating is not working, please check the relevant How-to video. If you can't fix it, please contact Joy and she will investigate the problem and get you warm again as quickly as possible. We want you to stay cosy!
Instruction booklets are in a folder in the sideboard in the dining room.
Instruction videos are in our How-to Guide.
If there is a fault with one of the appliances, please call or text Joy so she can investigate.
In the Highlands our repairs are done by independent trades people and replacements will come from Inverness so these things can take some time.
Damaged furniture is dangerous – for example if a damaged chair breaks when someone else sits on it.
Please tell us about any damage so we can fix it. We know accidents happen and won’t be upset.
You can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
Please do not go there without an appointment – phone the practice first
