Better than the Brochure!

Everything, including the optional excursions, were made extra special by the Driver RICHARD with his knowledge of the surrounding countryside. This is the main reason for us visiting Scotland yet again.

This Holiday was full of variety, lots of wonderful scenery, great value.

We knew the Hotel would be great, as we had stayed there before. The whole place is steeped in history. What we did not anticipate was the great railway journeys that we were to take, the scenery was out of this world. Also for around £8 wewere able to take the cable railway to the top of Mt. Cairngorm,an experience that should not be missed. The views were something special. On the whole a fantastic holiday.
