A relaxing holiday could cause you to need an accident solicitor in Colbost
Colbost is in the Scottish Highlands on the island of Skye. It is the perfect getaway place for anyone interested in photography, walking, bird watching, writing or meditation. It is on the B884 road and overlooks Loch Dunvegan.
Those wishing to take photographs will find the views of the Loch spectacular and it will be difficult to drag yourself away as you catch the early morning light. Anyone with poetic urges will also be no doubt inspired by the breathtaking scenery of the Loch and the white buildings which seem to snuggle near it. If you’re after pure peace and tranquillity, then Colbost could be for you.
Not always an idyllic holiday spot
Of course, it hasn’t always been that way. During the 18 and 19th centuries there was an agricultural revolution and the crofters who rented small patches of land from hereditary landowners found themselves being evicted. The reason was simply that it was more profitable for the landowners to graze sheep on the land than collect the small rents from their tenants. This was backed by the government who awarded financial aid for the roads and bridges to help the new sheep based trade. In the late 19th century the forced evictions arrived at the now idyllic holiday spot of Colbost.
Loose stair carpets
Even if you feel relaxed, and you are sure that nothing will spoil your tranquillity, you can never be certain when an accident is going to happen through someone else’s negligence. For instance, if you had booked into a bed and breakfast or hotel and the stair carpet was loose, you could go head over heels down the stairs.
