Some images from the gathering and tours around it.  A wee note from a happy guest; Jack and I could not have been more pleased with our trip. We praised your efforts many times, and loved being with you and Shona. She is a delightful young woman, and I know you must enjoy her immensely. We would like to do a review for other readers to tell them how capable, conscientious and talented you are in planning trips. You are just the best! We have one suggestion. When we left Inverness, we stopped at Spean Bridge. We had lunch at Russell's Restaurant. It is by the little mill which is by a bridge. We went to Russell's. We had a "proper Sunday roast" as the owner said when we entered," no sandwiches." It was divine food and excellent service. You might want to add it to your list of places. Also, I have invited my daughter, who is an Episcopal priest, to return with me to Iona next summer, probably either the first or second or third week of July for a week retreat. I just adored the Iona Hotel, their food and that island. It is a perfect place for a retreat. Here is where you come in. I want Jack to join me at the end of my retreat on Iona. We would meet in Glasglow, I guess--I will see my daughter off and greet Jack. Then, Jack and I would like to tour the outer islands, places north of Inverness. We were thinking about 7-10 days. He just said that he really loves Scotland and doesn't want to go to Ireland or England, just see the rest of northern Scotland! He must be a Scot at heart. My grandmother was a Guthrie, but I think he is Scottish to the bone. He has been really cute and said, "I can't plan next summer. I am still enjoying and reflecting on my time in Scotland from this summer." However, I think in a few more days, he will be ready to be more specific about a trip next summer. . I have already taken on four more classes to teach after school this next year so that I can begin stuffing my piggy bank for Scotland. We found the information centers in Scotland to be helpful.(The purple "i's") You may have mentioned that in your notes, but they are easy to find and help with maps, directions, etc. We would give all the places we stayed an excellent rating. You are awesome and as my students say, "Liz Rocks!" Thank you for a wonderful holiday even though Jack is having some withdrawal pains! Let us know how to write a review...Trip Advisor? We want to let others know about you. Claudia. Note; Claudia and jack came to the Maclean gathering in June 2012 with us. Paul; actually, we have a lot like this! Thanks to everyone for their photos.  “Thanks to Paul, Liz and Mclean Scotland Travel for an absolutely fabulous Scotland vacation. You guys took such good care of my family, and I cannot thank you enough!” and ... “I agree 100%. They planned my 2007 trip and it went off without a hitch! A better company I couldn't have found anywhere!
