|As any hotelier will tell you, they get some strange requests, but perhaps one of the oddest was one posed to the Kinlochbervie Hotel recently.|
A gentleman came into reception and enquired whether they had any rooms available.
Fortunately for him there was still one room remaining, which led on to his second question: 'And do you have somewhere I could park my helicopter?'
Fortunately, again, there was room on the lawn at the back of the hotel for the intrepid aviator to park his vehicle.
The helicopter is under contract to perform aerial surveys of the telephone lines in the north west. They also perform surveys of electricity transmission lines.
