Runnacleave Hotel

I started work as an Hotel Receptionist at the Runnacleave Hotel on the 16th May 1970 and spent four wonderful summers there. It was my first time away from home and a bit daunting at first, but with the kindness and help of Anita Roberts, the owner, it became my home for the nest four seasons. I have so many memories ...Read full memory

Happy Holidays In The 60s

I remember family holidays at Runnacleave. Vague memories of a particular room that was long & thin with two beds in line. Stayed again couple of years after & remember looking though keyhole at the same room - was only 9 or 10 at the time! Also memories of cave or tunnel through to beach. Hope these are real memories & not my mind playing games.
