Gina and John Cameron Alaska said at 18:22 on Tuesday 13th of October 2015:

Hello Marie We really enjoyed our vacation; you created the trip of a lifetime for us! We blew out two tires on our mini cooper on the way to Oban the first day, but were able to get to the castle by 10pm in a rental car, and get back on schedule with the mini the next day. Graeme Wardlaw/BMW really helped us out and were wonderful to us. My favorite place was our little Nairn hotel, and I love Nairn. I want to live there. I was quite pleased with your B&B selections, so thank you for putting us on a great trip. Driving in Scotland was a challenge for both of us, but we managed and saw a lot of the country and met real people, just as we wanted to do. We would love to return when the price of oil goes back up. Our Alaska economy is dependent on the price of oil, which is currently below comfort level, and statewide layoffs are underway. Sincerely, Gina Cameron

Hi Elspeth & Marie, Well, we have just boarded the plane to return to Australia from a most wonderful trip to the United Kingdom. Everything worked liked clockwork and other than too much rain, we had an excellent trip. Thank you for all your hard work in organising the accommodation for us. We were expected and welcomed at each B&B and there was not a single issue. The websites and information packages proved to be invaluable and we certainly appreciated having all the info you provided. We also greatly valued having the maps with suggested routes and highlighted attractions with us. They certainly gave us excellent guidance and they were taken to dinner most nights. We also made full use of the Heritage passes but were disappointed when they reached their use by date! We thought we might give you some feed back on our reactions/thoughts of the various accommodation sites you organised for us. As we do not know the cost of the rooms our thoughts are not at all influenced by the $ sign...although some were most obviously more costly than others. We have awarded points based on how we felt about each venue. So in order of our itineray....... Edinburgh. Points 7-8/10 The boys were fantastic and very helpful with tourism info, bus arrangements and other general information. The room was lovely, if smallish and the breakfasts were fantastic. We would recommend this venue in the future. Nairn. Points 9/10 Our hostess was fantastic. The room was spacious, spotless and just gorgeous. Breakfasts were fantastic and we really enjoyed ourselves. We would have loved to have had more time in Nairn and at the B&B. Again our hosts were very helpful with tourism info, dinner bookings and other general information. We would highly recommend this in the future. Fort William. Points 9/10 Our hostess was also very helpful and The Grange was just beautiful! The breakfasts were outstanding and her fruit platters are most memorable. Scottish strawberries left us drooling. Our Aussie fruits taste shameful compared to Scottish fruit I must admit. Again Joan was very helpful with tourism info, dinner bookings and other general information. We would highly recommend this in the future. Isle of Skye. Points 7/10 Christine was also very friendly, helpful and gave us lots of tips. This newish home was also very spacious and comfortable with more beautiful food for breakfast. We would recommend this in the future. The castle near Oban. Points 8/10 Well indeed a highlight! Very spacious, romantic and full of the feeling of actually being in history. Whilst we can understand the internet issues they were trying to address, it was very frustrating to be out of contact as even mobile phone coverage was bad. Overall it was a great experience and we would recommend this to others for the castle experience but they need to fix their internet. B&B near Glasgow Airport. Points 9/10 What a gem this was. Francesca was an absolute diamond and her home just magnificent. We regretted only having one night there as the ambience was so good. We could do no other than highly recommend her to others. So they were some of our thoughts. We will highly recommend your services to our friends in the future. A most excellent service indeed! Regards, Meredith and Peter

Marie and Elspeth, We’re back home again after a marvelous trip. Thank You so much for all your efforts on our behalf. Our only regret is that we didn’t have enough time to see everything we would have liked, but that was because of jet lag. We want to specially commend Joan at The Grange and Ian and Alan at Kew House. They were incredibly friendly and helpful, we’d recommend their accommodations to anyone. And finally, thanks to you Marie for your hospitality at The Braighe. We had a lovely time in Nairn and Inverness, mostly due to your suggestions and thoughtfulness. All the best. David and Donna Fletcher, Linden, California

Anita Cook said at 18:33 on Monday 13th of April 2015:

Mary, Your Team, and all those who visit this site, Our family can only credit you and your team for planning not one, but two of our best vacations! Both Scotland, 2009, and France, 2014, and now in 2015 a third time! You treated us like we were your only customer and provided us with spectacular places to visit, places to stay and all those hidden gems that are never found in a regular guide book. You were kind, efficient and always friendly. We would highly recommend to all your viewers, that you don't step off a plane to Scotland or France, until you have called Mary. You simply can't imagine how invaluable her service is and it will guarantee a wonderful vacation that you shall have to remember forever. Kindest regards, Anita, Jeff and family COOK

Graham and Monica Glezerson Canada said at 9:54 on Friday 28th of November 2014:

Hello Marie, we had a wonderful time, thanks to your expert planning and advice. Each of the accommodations had its own special charm and touch. Our favorite was the B&B in Portree, Isle of Skye. We have told many of our friends about your company, and your expertise, and will continue to do so. Pitlochry was really fabulous. There was an enchanted forest light festival on when we were there, and we were unable to get tickets on the day. We wish we would have known about this before, as we might have preordered tickets. Your information on ferry schedules was invaluable. We visited 4 or 5 distilleries in the highlands - most enjoyable. Monica's highlight was the Harry Potter bridge. Hotel accommodations in Glasgow and Edinburgh were perfect - excellent locations, and excellent service. Contrary to what many people told us, we really enjoyed Glasgow. Overall, the food we had throughout the trip was excellent. We really enjoyed fresh seafood, and plentiful lamb. A memorable trip, thanks to you and Elspeth - thank you once again. Best wishes for the holidays, Graham and Monica

Beth and Ken Harradine Australia said at 22:39 on Monday 11th of August 2014:

Hi Marie and Elspeth Just a quick note to thank you once again for your planning of our short stay in Scotland. The accommodation was great, and can highly recommend both our B&B in Thurso and also in Dornoch. Both hosts were helpful and friendly. The gardens in Thurso were magnificent-Jocko has done most of the work himself and has turned it into a beautiful showpiece. Of course the best stay we has was in Nairn at The Braighe B&B on Albert Street!!!Both hosts were wonderful. If we ever return to Scotland, we will once again use your expertise. Thank you once again for a wonderful,hassle free trip. Thanks Beth and Ken Harradine Have a great day

Nancy, Joseph Weiss and party July 2014 said at 13:04 on Friday 1st of August 2014:

Hi there Marie, Just a LONG OVERDUE note to THANK YOU for planning our amazing, memorable trip through Scotland! We really loved everything about our trip! The vehicle worked out fine (aside from the minor "glitch" of Joe's little "incident"!!) and your instructions, guides, and tips were just ideal. And those castles! Oh, we loved them! I felt like a medieval princess! A highlight was visiting both Stirling and Culloden. Then on Skye, we happened on a race taking place at a little town, up a mountain and back, which had been won by a Ghurka some years ago.who was running once again. There was a fundraising event for the retired Ghurkas and we learned a lot. Just a fun happenstance! Then, while we were staying in Plockton, we took a L o o o n g drive on a rainy day up the mountains. We were so incredibly hungry and couldn't find anyplace to go! But--we finally found a tiny little seaside town that was almost abandoned due to the weather, and lucked into a tiny, amazing little restaurant (see photo) where we had a truly memorable lunch! Serendipitous! The lower photo is our "selfie" which we took while squashing ourselves into the oh-so-tiny toilet in one of the castle bedrooms! We had so many laughs! I could go on and on... But suffice to say we LOVED Scotland and the lovely people! We hope to go back one day to spend more time on Skye! We all cannot thank you enough, Marie, for your HUGE part in planning an unforgettable, magic-moment-filled vacation. All of our most sincere, heartfelt thanks! Nancy and Joe Weiss and friends. USA
