Kind Words From Folk Who Enjoy Must See Scotland

What A Great Site!
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.

Love Your Writing
I so enjoyed your writing style. (Information on Scotland was wonderful too.) I read part of it to my husband, who is also a writer. We laughed and he kept commenting, "He's really good."

We are planning a month's stay in the Outer Hebrides, roaming around Scotland from there - Dwight, to photograph and write about stone circles and me to act as sherpa and paint. I found your blog by searching "when is the worst time for midges in Scotland" - we will be arriving mid June.

We didn't even know about them (midges) until a fellow we met at a hostel told us about abandoning his camp and all his gear fleeing the midges. With all the wind we encountered, we figured we'd be safe making the Hebrides our base. Anyway, thanks again for your writing. I can only imagine how delightful it would be to visit with you, chatting over tea. Thank you again for sharing your love for your homeland.

I Can't Thank You Enough For All You've Shared!
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!
Gilbert - 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.)

More Power To Your Keyboard!
High praise to the puffinologist - I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your page on where to see puffins and your creative use of language (he says, carefully skirting around any suggestion whatsoever that any of the words might be a teensy bit made up).

Thank You!
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
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
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! Jill Gilbert

Congratulations On A Great Site
Congratulations on a great site which is so refreshingly personal and meaty in these days of corporate marketing speak.

I Absolutely Adore Your Site
I absolutely adore your site and your writing, even if I were not considering going to Scotland the entertainment value alone is priceless!

Very Informative, Very Charming  & It Makes Me Laugh!
I just want to thank you for your website! It gives a good first idea, where to go or start. I am planning to visit Scotland this year by myself and like to travel by car, so I am looking up interesting websites and yours is very informative, but not just that, its very charming and it makes me laugh !

Fabulous Website With A Wealth Of Information
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to congratulate and thank you for a fabulous website with a wealth of information. I have been browsing the internet for some easily digestible information when I stumbled across your site. All the necessary info in one place and written in an informative and friendly way. I will direct anyone looking for more information on Scotland to this website now that I'm aware of it. I just wish I'd known about it before! Well done!

Regards, Gerry, UK

Great Website
Not often I "LOL" when reading travel guides, not only very witty (Midges especially) but really helpful too!!

Just an appreciation here. You've got it all HERE! So much valuable information, excellent photography, and I've been laughing by ass off since I found your site. So Thank You!
