No, not that sort of guests – nor anyone staying at Carrick!
The scene of this little story, told recently on The Big Garden blog, is just ten minutes walk up the croft from Carrick, a little above the hill fence.

Guests at Carrick – the guests we are expecting! – are welcoming to join me on my morning routine. They’ll certainly get an audience with Queenie herself, and there could be lambs to delight in, shearing to watch or help with, or the ponies to meet. Or why not continue up to the summit of the hill – you’ll already be more than half-way there!
