Arthur I Scotland I August, 2022

Arthur and his brother, Richard, traveled to Scotland in August 2022. They mentioned that dinner at Edinburgh Castle and the Military Tattoo were the highlights of the trip. They also said that the beautiful countryside and friendly locals made for a fantastic trip.

Here’s what they had to say about traveling with Crystal Travel & Tours:

How would you rate your trip? 5/5
Who was your travel expert? Ann
How were your accommodations? Great
What did you love? The shower at Forss!  All of the properties were great for different reasons, all breakfasts were very good.  Each property was careful with my celiac and needs to be gluten free.

Could have skipped Shieldaig Lodge for one night.  The Itinerary gave us the impression it was in or close to Ullapool, whereas it was another 60 miles away after a long drive.  We were really not able to enjoy any of the beauty of the lodge.  Dinner was great, breakfast too, but for one night, would have been fine to stay in Ullapool, we did not have the chance to visit the that city at all.

Heads up on the terrible parking situation in  Portree would have been beneficial, not really a complaint, just unexpected!

Did everything go smoothly with your transportation? Yes
What did you love? The car was great.  The intercontinental was well worth the stay, Aimee at the front desk took very good care of us and the location in Edinburgh was ideal.

Kevin and Kirsty at Ardlogie were wonderful!

Our room at The Manor House had a spectacular view.

What tours, attractions, or activities did you particularly enjoy? Booking dinner at Edinburgh Castle and the Military Tattoo was amazing and definitely one of the highlights of the trip
What was your favorite part of the trip? Hard to say, the countryside was beautiful, the people were friendly , the country so clean (except they were in day 4 of a garbage worker strike in Edinburgh with an estimated 400,000 visitors for Fringe, it was pretty bad)
Would you travel with us again? Yes
How can we improve for next time? Ann was wonderful, except for the few things mentioned above, I have no suggestions for improvement.
Any other questions or comments? Thanks for setting up this great trip!
