Scottish Airport Sale

I would have thought you could have bought the whole of Scotland for half this much

Well having travelled a lot in Scotland I would say there were parts that they would give you and be glad to get rid of. Other parts you couldn't buy for Billions.

You are right about the "some parts" Phil, I have been all around the Highlands.

We haven't been for years now, to see the best views and scenery there is a lot of walking involved and to be honest neither the wife or I are not that capable now. Level ground is not too bad but there is not much of that in Scotland.

Phil if you like the Scottish Highlands and don't want to walk far I can 100% reccomend Highland Heritage Holidays, its a coach job from Digbeth in the best coaches , great hotels and ecellent food and loads of it. I have been there twice and stayed in two of their hotels absolutely superb. Entertainment laid on too.

I don't mind the driving and I can drive anywhere a coach does, but when you get off the coach you still have to walk to some of the places. After saying that, I have been on coach holidays a few times and enjoyed them, the thing to do is check out the hotels that the company uses before you book, because some of the hotels used by some companies can be quite gruesome.

Phil I can personally recommend Highland Heritage. The company is owned by a guy called Ian Cleaver, he actually ownes the hotels. Their food, sevice, tours are second to none.

He owns four hotels very well run and operates a top quality coach fleet.

I have got nothing against coach holidays and would recommend them to anybody who likes a big friendly holiday. I'm just saying that there are one or two companies that you have to watch. As I said it's best to check out the hotels first.

After saying that, I have to say that we have had some very nice holidays with coach companies and thanks for the tip I will check Highland Heritage out.
