Scotland the Beautiful

Date posted: April 9, 2012

In the last two weeks we have visited 2 islands. We spent a weekend at the Auchrannie Hotel and Spa resort on Arran and on Saturday we had a day in Mull visiting our nephew Robert. It really brought home to Dorothy and I the vastness and the unspoilt beauty on our doorstep. I was also delighted with the level of service we received at the Auchrannie Hotel. I have been critical in the past of Scottish Hospitality and well remember arriving at hotels at 2:00pm with two hungry children to be told lunch was “finished” and the kitchen closed. Well the staff at Auchrannie were totally welcoming, the service was superb and any visitor would leave with a warm glow.

And the beauty of the islands… We sunbathed on Whiting Bay beach and walked some of Arran’s coastal path. Then in Mull we visited the croft where our nephew was staying with friends – breathtaking views. Not a midge or a wind farm in sight!! Not that the midges spoil the views just one’s enjoyment of them! With the proposed desecration of our beautiful country, the wind turbines will also kill wildlife including the bats (which by the way eat midges!)

This morning I was on Good Morning Scotland talking about e-books with Gary Robertson.

Today is Easter Monday and we have a free download of A Million Tears and Mayhem on Kindle. Please tell friends and family if you read this in time.

My new thriller, Corruption, is just finishing being edited and hopefully should be out on Kindle shortly.
