Utilities

What Do I Need to Know About the Heating?

The oil central heating and hot water programmer is located in the
utility room above the boiler.
You can turn the central heating and/or water on manually for either
one hour or until thenext automatic ‘on’ set time by pressing the
relevant grey button on the control box (1hr/man). Please do not
adjust the programmed times.
The radiators have thermostatic controls which you can adjust to turn
the heating up or down as you prefer. Please do not adjust the valves
on the radiator in the main bathroom as this does not have a
thermostatic control.

What Do I Need to Know About the Fireplace?

Always leave 1-2cm of ash at the bottom.
Place 1-2 fire lighters in the centre of the stove.
Lay 4-6 layers of dry small sticks crosswise.
A good bed of embers ensures the wood will catch fire
more easily.
Do not put too much wood in the stove or allow the
stove to get red hot as this can damage both the
stove and the chimney.

What Do I Need to Know About Recycling?

Cardboard/Paper – Placed in one of the black bins a the bottom of
the drive that is specifically for recycling (black bin with organics
only written on it)
Glass – Placed in the specified area in the utility room (green)

WIFI Details

Hub: BT-63CK82

Password: FPfcDYEqmbPv7J

The Password for the Hub is case sensitive, so please enter exactly as shown above. Please be aware that the download speeds and service reliability may be lower than you are used to. Due to the surrounding hills you are unlikely to be able to use a mobile phone inside the house but depending on your service provider, you should be able to get a signal in the garden. You may be able to access 4G in Tarbert and some parts of the island. EE often has the best coverage.

Transport

Tips and Tricks for Driving on the Island!

Stop Safely and Reverse Carefully:

Always be able to stop within the distance you can safely see along the road. Be able to reverse when required and be aware of the ditches close to the edge of the carriageway.

Keep an Eye Out for Animals:

Be on the look out for animals such as sheep, cattle and deer; give way to them. Sheep often lie in the Bunavoneader road junction, at night.

Be Courteous at Road Ends

If you are approaching the end of a two-way stretch of road, give way to oncoming traffic on the single-track.

Stay in Your Car at Passing Spots:

Do not leave your vehicle when in a passing place, even if the road seems empty.

Watch Your Back:

Use your rear-view mirror to keep a look out for any tailback of vehicles behind you, signal and pull into the nearest passing place when safe to do so.

Follow Passing Place Rules:

Whoever reaches a passing place first should give way to oncoming traffic. However, priority should always be given to traffic coming uphill.

Use Passing Spots Smartly:

If the passing place is on your left, pull in to let oncoming traffic get past. If the passing place is on your right, stop along side it; leaving enough room for the oncoming vehicle to pass safely.

Slow Down for Walkers and Riders:

Be aware of pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders; slow down for them as it can often be a tight squeeze.
