GREAT FEEDBACK!

  • Thanks for your great website. It has been so very helpful on this our first visit to Scotland. We are housesitting in Peebles for the month. I've been enjoying scenes like the one above in all directions from Peebles, climbing all the surrounding mountains one by one, and learning the true meaning of the term "hillwalking". When we visited Edinburgh, we simply followed your guide to the letter.

  • Your website has been a great read as I do like to spend our precious time wisely. We are heading over in mid August for 4 weeks. Getting a motorhome (smallest we can find) to venture across the lands of the UK starting in Scotland.
