LOCHEARNHEAD, Scotland - June 17, 2013 - PRLog -- Tourism gift experience vouchers worth £50 await guests booking selected weeks in Briar Cottages luxury and pet friendly self catering (sleep 4 plus a baby) on the banks of Loch Earn.

 “We want to mark Year of Natural Scotland 2013 by giving extra treats to our guests” explains Kim. Wildlife activity, art in nature, Scottish food and historic landscape theme gift vouchers await those who book set weeks at Briar Cottages in Lochearnhead throughout the year.

7 nights in July at luxury Briar Steading comes with £50 to spend on delicious food and drink at new MHOR 84, formerly the Kingshouse Hotel.  Fraser says “We are proud to associate with the MHOR brand and chef Tom Lewis’s fabulous bar menus. He serves great value tasty food using fresh Scottish ingredients that are homemade, grown, reared, and foraged. Enthusiastic staff and occasional live traditional Scottish music create a fun atmosphere.”  A Hidden Glen Safari awaits 2 people at pet friendly Little Briar during July too.  Alan Sneddon will pick guests up in his Landrover before heading off road across the Braes of Balquhidder, to spot deer, eagles and other iconic wildlife. His local knowledge and stories surrounding Rob Roy MacGregor’s final stomping ground are entertaining. A Highland Glen Travel gift voucher in August entitles the bearers to a chauffeur driven tour. Helen or George Cunningham will show off the naturally beautiful terrain that surrounds historic Loch Earn or the voucher can be used for local taxi journeys to neighbouring villages. September’s £50 voucher is for SULA soft furnishings shop between Lochearnhead and Balquhidder.  Chat with Catriona MacGeoch and marvel at the array of Harris Tweed and Scottish Wool colours, textiles and projects in her workshop.  Choose a handmade cushion, commission a bespoke product or invest towards upholstered furniture on display. The voucher is for SULA branded goods and services, though the shop also showcases cottage industry arts and crafts that represent a wealth of local talent.

Kim believes that value for money, clean, comfortable accommodation and a warm welcome should be standard when booking somewhere to stay in Scotland and that hosts should combine active listening with personality, flair and energy to create a unique experience at every price point.   “We want our guests to have a comfortable, enjoyable and memorable stay, so we engage with them.  We love when they share first impressions and experiences, especially when their expectations are surpassed and they return for more” she says.  Fraser shares that working alongside quality tourism businesses run by friends and neighbours helps to make their section of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park even more attractive. “Living amongst friendly quality businesses is a terrific advantage. We collaborate with colleagues from Lochearnhead, Balquhidder, Strathyre and St Fillans with a common aim to ensure that visitors feel welcome in the community” he says.
