"Just got home after spending a week in "The Owl". The only reason we decided to visit Scotland was that my brother-in-law married a Scottish lass and we felt duty-bound to visit. To be honest, I wasn't initially keen on "wasting" my prized annual leave on somewhere so cold and barren.
It just goes to show what ignorance can do. My wife, two young children and I, have just had a magical time! We saw some beautiful countryside, met warm, wonderful people, ate huge helpings of delicious food, felt the history and drank the whisky! But the thing that topped it all off for me was the quality of the accommodation. Everything was catered for and we felt really at home immediately. Absolutely first class...so much so we actually feel as if we've cheated a bit for paying so little!
If you're wondering about a holiday in Scotland and want to get away from the touristy haggis-and-shortbread bits, come here. It's wonderful..."
