Spring Greetings from Scotland
I just want to say a big HELLO from the beautiful West Highlands of Scotland to all my clients past & present, to the great teams at the variety of wonderful travel agencies & specialists with whom I have the pleasure of working.
In this difficult time, I take much consolation and joy from the stunning surroundings in this part of the world, in which I feel privileged to live. I’m sure Spring wherever we are brings a bit of cheer but I have to say that we have been truly blessed with some wonderful weather ( lunch outside in April ! ) that reminds me how fortunate we are to live in this unique corner of the world.
We are lucky enough to have a large garden much of which is fairly wild. However, like many of you I expect, we are becoming more enthusiastic gardeners. I have been clearing small forests of mature rhododendron, many of which had scarcely been touched in decades. Our walled garden area is looking really tidy and our son ( who had to come home from Glasgow with his job ending ) has been a brilliant help. He has recently dug a large, new bed for vegetables in our little orchard; roll on self-sufficiency !
I have picked a couple of images, which I hope will give many of you something to smile about.

I look forward to staying in touch with you and to properly re-connecting when travel restrictions are lifted; and I remain hopeful of arranging some great touring with you later this year. Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter – it doesn’t matter – Scotland is a wonderful place to visit !
