Debbie and Jeffery Snow and family July 2016 said at 12:38 on Tuesday 23rd of August 2016:

Hi Marie, Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much for organizing the Scottish portion of our holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed it! The weather was very good, better then we expected. All of the information that you sent as well as the map your provided was all very helpful. Everywhere we stayed was very nice and the hosts of the accommodations were very friendly and helpful. We found the Scottish people in general to be very kind and welcoming. I thought I would give some comments on each place we stayed in case you would want the feedback for places that you are recommending. Our Oban B&B - Beautiful home with very pleasant hosts. We particularly enjoyed have the large main floor suite so I didn't have to climb the stairs (arthritis in my knee). The bathroom for this suite was large and well appointed with luxury bath products. The breakfast of salmon and scrambled eggs was truly delicious! Our castle stay - Our sons were thrilled to stay in a castle! It was beautiful with interesting interior with hidden staircases in the dining room walls! Truly a special location to stay. The breakfast was fantastic! The Skye B&B - The location was quite remote, but the accommodation itself was nice and the view was pretty spectacular. The host was a very nice lady. Our least favourite breakfast but it was fine. If we were doing this again, we probably would have skipped Skye unless we could get 2 nights accommodation as we found that it was too much driving from Oban to this B&B for one night only and then to drive all the way to Nairn the next day. We really had no time to spend touring Skye itself. I realize it was difficult for you to find us any accommodation on Skye as it was so busy there during our visit. Our Nairn B&B - Very nice accommodation and very friendly hosts Andy & Anika. The breakfast was very good and we loved the specialty coffee machine for lattes! We got to see some of Andy's photography which is amazing. Our little family run hotel in Nairn - Probably our favourite accommodation! Beautiful huge room with great view and nice spacious bathroom. Fresh fruit provided in our room each day, along with water, cookies and tea. Everything was immaculate. We had our evening meals there on both nights and it was fantastic - gourmet food! The breakfast was also wonderful. We would definitely come back to this hotel and would recommend it highly. Our Edinburgh B&B - Beautiful house and wonderfully decorated. Probably our best breakfast - gourmet quality - not surprised that they won the "egg cup award". The hosts were very nice. In all, it was a wonderful holiday in Scotland and we have you to thank Marie for organizing it all for us. We would definitely recommend your services as you are very organized and comprehensive in your service. Thanks again, Debbie & Jeffery Snow (Toronto, Canada)

Marie, We had a marvelous adventure in your beautiful country! I snapped over 500 pictures and I'm still trying to winnow out the best to send you. I didn't want you to think I had forgotten! I will email my favorites soon. Thank you again for your wonderful planning that made our journey flawless! Grace and peace, Charity and Russell Cowger (USA living in Germany)

Hi Marie, Sorry not to have written earlier, I keep getting distracted but other things (unfortunately usually work). Laura and I had a wonderful time in Scotland! The only problem was we always wanted to stay longer. All the Bed and Breakfasts were wonderful and the people were very helpful and always reccomended great places to eat and local attractions. Ardtorna was amazing, but a little hard to find, not too difficult though. Oban is an amazing area, and we were really happy we took Seans recomendation and took a longer route back to Edinburgh, it was a very beautiful drive. I would certainly recommend you to our friends, you guys put togather a wonderful package for us, and with very short notice. Lodging is where I spend most of my time in planning, not having to do that research and planning was really great, I couldn't have hoped for better locations. Thank you again for your help! Drummond and Laura Howard Siena, Italy

Marie - thanks again for all your help in arranging a fantastic two weeks in Scotland! All the B&B's were great as were the hosts. The two nights in the "Black Castle" were especially memorable. I greatly enjoyed golf in Pitlochry and Nairn and we all enjoyed the day in Speyside touring the distilleries with James. The driving map and supplemental information you provided were of immense help as well. We will certainly utilize your services again and hopefully it won't be too far in the future.

Hi Marie and Elspeth, Sorry its taken me so long to write a note of thanks for an amazing 21 day trip in Scotland. Running 2 businesses makes going away for a week difficult so our first 21 day trip in more than 10 years was a feat! We are starting to even out a bit now so here I am writing to you with smiles and happy memories of the best holiday weve ever had! The locations of each of the B&Bs was outstanding as well as the recommendations for places to eat. We were amazed at how kind and attentive the hosts were at each location. Thurso, Aboyne, and Nairn stand out specifically as being really wonderful. Many even remembered that it was our anniversary trip and gave us some congratulations and in one case a very thoughtful card. The trip to Orkney that you recommended was a wonderful addition to our itinerary and wont be forgotten. A major highlight was our day with the Skye Ghillie. Mitchell was informative, and fun which is a great combination when spending an entire day together. We would definitely book with him again if we find our way back to Skye. The driving map was a lovely touch and much appreciated as we planned our days. We have been recommending you to all of our friends and family since our return and hope to drum up some additional business for you from here in Nova Scotia. Thanks again! Wendy & Glenn Hunter

Will Johnson and Andreas Woelfle, September 2015 said at 15:29 on Monday 19th of October 2015:

Dear Marie, Just wanted to say a quick hello and thank you for organizing a wonderful 10-day stay in Scotland for Andreas and me. We had a great time and enjoyed every B&B and town/city. The hosts were friendly and made us feel at home. I would like to make special mention of George and Angela in Nairn and Francesca in Glasgow. George and Angela told us a lot about the area and history, showed us interesting books and answered our many questions. Their breakfasts were great too. Francesca was particularly hospitable. She made Andreas and me feel like we were part of the family. Meeting such kind hosts made our time in Scotland even more special. Thanks for putting us in such good hands! I hope youve had a nice, relaxing time in France. Many greetings from Stuttgart, (from Andreas too), Will P.S. In Fort William we asked Catriona about nearby laundry facilities. Since she was on her own that evening and had time, she insisted on washing and drying our clothes for us. When we got back from a restaurant later that evening, we found our clothes neatly folded and laid out on our beds!

Hi Marie, We had a great time in Scotland, but your country has so many beautiful places to visit that we saw just a fraction of what we could have done. We ran out of time. We appreciate that you tailor-made our vacation. We told you the things that we wanted to see and do and you planned a great week for us. Our accommodations were outstanding. That was one of our favorites things of Scotland was that and meeting the people at our different stops. They were very welcoming and the places were beautiful and very well maintained. The brochures that you specially wrote up for us were very helpful and helped us make the decisions for the day. It was so true that you made Scotland easy to come and enjoy. Again, thanks for everything. Everytime I think of Scotland I smile and remember.

Roberta and Brian Wells, Chelmsford, Massachusetts. USA said at 14:20 on Wednesday 14th of October 2015:

HI Marie We enjoyed our trip to Scotland immensely. The only thing we regretted is not having gotten to stay at your own B&B! We very much enjoyed the accommodations you did arrange for us, they put us exactly where we needed to be for the things we wanted to see and the map was invaluable (even if we didn't always follow your recommended route!). We were even able to pass the map on to our daughter and her husband as they drove from Edinbirgh to St Andrews to Loch Lomond, Oban, and Glasgow. Having the Scottish Heritage Pass was nice, but I don't feel we got a lot of value from it as most of the places we visited didn't accept it due to being privately owned, and by the time we got to Sterling Castle it had expired (having activated it at the Tennement House in Glasgow). Thank you for the offer of a discount on a future holiday. Unfortunately we are not able to take advantage of it at this time. Thank you again for your services. Your advice in scaling down my original expectations of how far we might be able to travel in the time available to us made for a much more relaxing and satisfying journey. Sincerely, Roberta and Brian Wells

Colin and Diana King, Dorking Surry said at 10:42 on Wednesday 14th of October 2015:

Marie, We wanted to tell you about our recent holiday in the Outer Hebrides - the holiday was great and all your efforts were appreciated. All the B&Bs were very good but the B&B on Eriskay was fantastic, by far the best B&B we have ever stayed in. The weather was not good but we did not go there for the sunshine, Every thing you said you would do was done and we had a holiday that we will remember. Kind Regards Colin and Diana (Surrey)
