Tigh Bhaan IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Utilities
Please note you are staying a very remote area with all the pluses and minuses that involves. We have mains electric however this is prone to interruption in violent stormy weather, we have a camping stove and candles for emergency use, conveniently store in the kitchen cupboard. Please note there is NO MAINS WATER OR MAINS SEWAGE.
The Water Supply
We have a private water supply straight from the hillside that enters the house via a filter and ultra-violet purifier. It is tested regularly, and is safe to drink, but you do so at your own risk.
The water supply is subject to weather, we share the supply with our neighbours, in prolonged dry conditions, one needs to be sensible about water usage. We do have 2000l storage tank, which can supply 4 days conservatively used water when the supply goes off. Prolonged heavy rain can cause flash floods which may damage the filter and interrupt the supply. In very cold weather the pipes might freeze, this is rare and pipe do thaw quickly, hopefully, however there is nothing that we can do to accelerate the situation.
We have two full jerry cans of water in the utility room, should the water go off and buckets in the household cupboard main bathroom incase water is need from the loch or stream to flush, the electric radiators are on a closed loop but the washing machine, dishwasher, shower, sinks and toilets will have no supply. Please contact us immediately so that we can arrange for maintenance to investigate the problem. Emma 07815758204
Electricity - the electricity supply on the peninsular is overground which means in stormy weather we get power cuts, that means no water (as its pumped from the tank) no electric rads, no cooker and no lights. We have candles and camping stove in the kitchen cupboard (please place the camping stove on mates on the work surface) water in jerry cans and for heat the wood burner.
Tigh Bhaan is serviced by a septic tank, please ensure that nothing you have not eaten only natural waste and toilet tissue is flushed down the toilet, any other items MUST be placed in the landfill bin. Please do not put fat from cooking down the sink, it blocks the drainage pipes to the tank. Please use our cleaning products aesthete biodegradable and eco friendly.
Central Heating is the wood burning Stove!
The central heating system is designed around the Eco compliance wood burning stove, to keep warm light the fire.
The electric radiators through out the house are background heat only, they are programmed to come on at off peak times only, which is:
6.30am - 7.30am, 2pm - 4pm, 8.30pm - 10.30pm
Please do not fiddle with the settings, on the programmer or individual radiators thermostats , they are all carefully balanced. It WILL NOT make the house warmer.
If you are cold light the fire.
The Opus stove is pretty simple to use, the two levers below the name are the vents, apart is open and together is closed.
Light the fire using our eco fire lighters and some smaller branches/kindling, once this has caught fire and you have some embers you can add logs and close the vents. Always close the door after adding fuel.
We have left enough logs for 3/4 fires, more logs can be taken from the wood shed.
The wood burner gives more steady heat, if you staying in all day, then light the fire in the morning and keep it ticking over.
