      Our Cozy Cairngorms trip gave us all we had been promised. We loved the Fife Arms Hotel in Braemar, the massage on the first afternoon was just what we needed after our walk, and the afternoon with Katie very interesting and enjoyable.

      Super trip and so glad that it was made possible. Loved to be in Scotland this time of year and we had excellent weather. And we arrived 29 jan and toured with you but then we continued to Ballater and walked another 3 days (seven Bridges, Sgor Buidhe and Loch Muick circuit) and then to Inverurie where we walked from Pittodrie house (several walks around Bennachie) so we only returned home yesterday - blown by the wind! But another succes story!! Will be back in Scotland 2 april.
