Alastair, the trip you arranged for us was the best vacation my family has ever taken. We actually visited 19 different castles on our trip and my wife and 10 year old never tired of a single one, as you are aware we spent a couple of days in Edinburgh, visiting all the sites and taking the ghost tours etc, which my daughter still talks about four months later! The beauty of the whole trip for all of us was how inexpensive the entire trip was for us to spend two entire weeks in one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
We will return and we will use your services once again! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We are now home from a wonderful trip. It's not without a tiny bit of trepidation that one books several days with a guide, sight unseen. (Kind of like signing up for a week on a very small sailboat with people you don't know ...it could be great, or it could be awful). But we were pretty confident ... all of our email correspondence as we planned the trip led me to believe that you were knowledgeable, a good listener, cheerful, resourceful, and above all, had a good sense of humor.
We all four had such a good time ... learned a lot, laughed a lot, drank a fair amount.
We made our first trip Scotland a couple of years ago. It was my good fortune to come across Alastair's website. I contacted him and told him I wanted to set up a trip to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. I explained that in addition to touring Scotland for the first time we also wanted visit the areas where my wife's grandparents were from. Alastair took my request and turned into a most memorable vacation.
"When we returned my wife showed her sister the pictures of the ancestral home and they decided they just had to see Scotland together. I contacted Alastair and asked him to set up the tour for us. We wanted to not only visit the ancestral home but wanted to go inside castle if possible. I didn't think Alastair could improve on our first trip but he did. Every place we stayed was just superb. Not only did the wives get to go inside the castle but the current owners gave us a tour and spent more than two hours telling us the history of the property. This vacation was a smashing success.
Thanks for the great tour. The Highlands are beautiful and was very fun to have someone knowing the history and showing us around finding some of the hidden gems and telling about the different areas, families and clans. Next time we are back we want to go out to one of the islands and for sure spend more time.
