Sandra and I both want to express our thanks for the accommodations that you arranged. We appreciated the range and quality of the lodgings; each was unique and top notch. The people at each were friendly and knowledgeable. The Braemar Gathering was a highlight (we spent all day and did see the Queen) and up there with our day around Inverness with Ken. My only tiny complaint was that after 7 perfect days in the Highlands; you let it rain on the last day. Please work on that!

Thanks again for your efforts, we hope to be back in Scotland in Aug/Sept of 2012

Hi Alastair,

Thank you again for arranging another wonderful trip to the Highlands for our family. Our trip went smoothly and the accommodations were perfect. My sister-in-law and her husband were impressed with the B&B's, Castle Stuart, and the beauty of Scotland. It was another memorable trip, and all we hoped it would be.

Best of luck with the Clans & Castles business!

Alastair, this was the most magical, wonderful vacation ever!!!

Thanks to you we had a gloriously-beautiful and educational tour through Scotland. You brought Diana Gabaldon's books to life for us.

Tim and I agree that this was our favorite week holiday that either of us have ever experienced.

Dear Brian,

It was great meeting you personally the other day. The Falconry and archery proved to be a wild success with the children. You have accomplished an impeccable performance with the Randle family.

Castle Stuart was just perfect for the children. And my wife raved over Ballathie. And I was thrilled with the drive south.

Lodging and food were terrific, top quality accommodations. We truly appreciated the ease of flow of the whole trip ... we checked in ... checked out ... no hassle. For the novice travelling family we could not have asked for better.

Your tour ideas were great. Scotland and the Scottish people were exceptional - we saw a lot of the country ... met some very friendly people - saw the land of my grandfathers ... everything was spot on.

Thank you again for your service - we will highly recommend you to our friends and family for future travels

Hallo Mr. Cunningham, we really were very satisfied with everything you had chosen for us, the bed and breakfast places, the routes, the distances and your recommendations, what to see or where to drive. And there was - for our taste - also enough freedom to make our own choices between. So I felt that you understood and translated my wishes very well. Thank you. Besides that I love the scottish landscape and the highlands and sheeps and lochs. And the weather worked out very well, although they had predicted 14 days of rain. We would recommend you to our friends.

Dear Alastair,

First of all I want to tell you, that we have had a really good time in Scotland.

My wife and myself enjoyed the journey in all the facets we expected. We want to thank you for your engagement concerning our holydays.

The different views of Scotland you proposed were exactly what I hoped to experience!

Wow, the trip was fantastic! Alistair, I would like to thank you and your company for providing just the right balance of structure and freedom to enjoy Scotland. We were able to see everything from prehistoric to modern times and get a sense of the 'real' Scotland.

On behalf of all of us, Thank you and Scottish Clans and Castles very much.

Hi Alastair,

Our trip was wonderful and so was Scotland. Scotland will stay best in our memories as it welcomed us friendly in any places and the nature was beautiful!!!

With respect to Scottish Clans and Castles - I am more than grateful for your quick, easy, warm and tailor-made service. The hotels were very good choices. I loved the hotel on the Isle of Skye most - especially its charm, its location and its landlady.

Hi Alastair,

We had a wonderful time! Your planning did match exactly.

Borthwick Castle was magnificent. A romantic candle light dinner and a real scottish castle ghost tour. On our way to Inverness our timing was so perfect that we turned up exactly for the Atholl Parade at Blair Castle. Celebrating this with an Edradour afterwards and in happy Whisky mood moved slowly towards Inverness.

Thank you very much for the planning.

If you want pics or more reference to support your business, don´t hesitate to contact me!

I want to thank you for giving us a wonderful tour on your country. I didn't expect to find Scotland so BEAUTIFUL!! The people was great, food delicious, the venues that you choose for us very good. We enjoyed every place we went.

The weather was another marvel to us. Every single day beautiful!! When it rained was at night, next morning sunshine! I think we took the sun with us to Scotland!

All and all, a great holiday and I hope I will be able to go back for more of your amazing country!

Good morning, Alastair,

Clans and Castles made this year's holiday one that far exceeded any expectations we could have had. The ease of your planning left us hassle free from the time we arrived until we left. More importantly, with a minimum of communication, you sensed exactly our needs: two nights in Edinburgh, three nights in the Inverness area, and three nights on Skye which allowed us to explore and to move at our own pace and to take advantage of opportunities we never anticipated.

The accommodations were not only conveniently located but were comfortable, most friendly and accommodating, and uniquely memorable. And your phone call was greatly appreciated.

Alastair, please accept our heart-felt thank you for everything, and if there is anything we can ever do for you, please don't hesitate to ask.
