Tour options


There’s more to North Wales than just mountains. These guided tours provide an excellent opportunity to witness the hidden treasures of the area, an insight into the ‘living culture’ and a varied interesting historical past. Celticos - Guided Walk & Ride Tours in Wales

For tours from Aberdeen, sightseeing, including castles and Speyside I recommend a real gentleman, Duncan: Duncan's Flexible Tours. For a boat trip from Mull or Oban we recommend https://www.turusmara.com

Our Ethos


Ross Birnie's 23 Mayfield. At 23 Mayfield you have friendly hospitality, tasteful and comfortable accommodation up to four poster luxury, and fabulous breakfasts (including locally sourced fish and homemade pancakes); all at an affordable price.

A great Whisky Inn in the heart of Speyside - Highlander Inn with Tatsuya and Duncan, your whisky experts as hosts.

We were fortunate to receive the finest hospitality at Mill House, highly recommended https://monzieestate.com/holidays/mill-house.

Arisaig House is a beautiful location, delicious foods and impeccable attentiveness and hosting https://arisaighouse.co.uk.

Apex Hotels have three design led 4 star contemporary hotels in Edinburgh with stylish, affordable accommodation that are very convenient for central Edinburgh (also Apex has hotels that I would recommend in Dundee and London).

Creative Opportunities


If you feel inspired and fancy a spot of recording while you are in Edinburgh I recommend my friend Andrea Meneghini's 21SEVEN recording studio. Andrea combines an open, affordable and personable approach, and will work on your behalf to achieve perfection.
