Kind words and appreciation from some of our readers who enjoy Must See Scotland

I can't thank you enough for all you've shared!

Johanna Summers

I've discovered your website a few days ago when looking for “I-don't-remember-what-information-regarding-our-summer-trip-to-Scotland”. I've been extensively, and compulsively, reading everything you've written here, often sharing the bits of sarcastic writing with my husband sitting on the desk opposite mine.

I can't thank you enough for all you've shared ! I found great ideas for our trip, and it cemented the idea that we HAVE to go to Orkney. From Aurélie (a Scotland lover from France, who left her heart somewhere in the Highlands when visiting for the first time in 2004 ; now preparing to take her children there, and hoping they'll love Scotland as much as their Mommy)

Praise!

Johanna and Gilbert (order of priority based on Gilbert's "About" page decision to give a nod to the one we all know deserves it) - I am a nobody across the ocean about to embark on my husband and my dream vacation. We've waited 28 years to get there, but we're coming to beloved Scotland! Yet, I can almost say I am nearly content to stay here on the Web reading these delightful articles that pique one's interest, carry one's attention to the next paragraph, and tease the intellect into thinking one is reading high literature. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I am in stitches. It has made my journey all the more adventuresome and enjoyable. We are partaking in nearly every part of Scotland, hiring a car and traveling full circle with stops at B&Bs and less touristy destinations. We do our research. I thought I'd say thank you because I'm sure you don't hear it enough. (Johanna, I think in another century your relatives may have ousted mine. I'm a descendant of the Mac/McQueens up in Inverness & Outer Hebrides. Still, I think we'd get along just fine today.) Respectfully, Vicki Dubnicka. March 2019

Thank You!

Johanna Summers

Just bumped into your website! Love it. Well written, easy to read and easy on the eye - colours/fonts etc. Love the humour as well as the practical tips. Keep it up as you are now ‘bookmarked’ as opposed to ‘midged’ We are coming for a visit in September on the motorbike so keep those midges in the cages, please!

Driving in Scotland

Johanna Summers

I had so much fun reading your page about driving in Scotland! Thanks for that. I just came back from the North Coast 500 and yeah, you are right about everything! I enjoyed the experience a lot, mind, and I find utterly charming the wave in the single track roads. I love it! And yes I curse with mighty power those who won't wave back. Thank you and keep writing!

Thank you for this website

Johanna Summers

I just wanted to tell you thank you for this website. I have been researching for months on how to best utilize our 6 nights in Scotland, and almost every website I read was trying to do too much in too little time. I found your suggestions refreshing and workable and we plan to follow your advice. we are flying into Edinburgh and flying out of Glasgow in August. Thank you!

What a great site!

Gilbert Summers

I just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed reading your info - I have laughed so much! We are 2 Aussie couples planning a UK trip in May 2018 and I have waded through a LOT of sites to try and determine what to see and the best means of doing so. Your sense of humour and practical advice is a breath of fresh air.
