Time Saving Holiday Accommodation Button - A Loch Earn Toursim Initiative
By: The Loch Earn Tourism Initiative Group
LETI is based in the villages of Balquhidder, Strathyre, Lochearnhead and St Fillans in central Scotland. The group promotes; where to stay, eateries, outdoor activities, services and events via its website. Accommodation includes, self-catering, hotel, inn, guesthouse, restaurant with rooms, campsite and bed & breakfast options. The new "Enquire Now" facility means that all accommodation providers can be targeted for up to the minute price and availability. No need to search individual properties in order to match requirements. Send one form and LETI tourism business folk will do the work.
The enquiry form asks for accommodation type preference, holiday dates plus any essential criteria ( e.g. guest numbers, pet friendly, travel cot). Any question can be posed. Messages are then shared with every LETI accommodation provider. Only those that best match the request will respond with current availability, prices and terms. Individual web page details and photographs can then be perused once availability and a good match is confirmed.
Kim Proven of Briar Cottages, Lochearnhead, steers LETI's website marketing and PR strategies. She says, "We are a self-funded group of tourism business friends and neighbours that live and work alongside each other. We meet to share ideas and collaborate on ways of improving our website and visitor experiences amongst other things. We are on first name terms so it’s easy to help guests with recommendations on where to stay, eat, fish, travel, golf and play. We like to pass LETI's website address to enquirers when we are already booked. Now, we can point them to our "Enquire Now" one hit button or offer to fill and send the form for them. We want as many people as possible to visit and return to this region that we are proud to promote. We want them to experience our chef-owned restaurants, Scottish wool soft furnishing specialist, wildlife safaris, bespoke tours and to engage with helpful villagers".
The four picturesque villages are on the A84 and A85 in central Scotland pinning Perthshire, Stirlingshire, The Trossachs and The Highlands together within The Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. The region boasts naturally beautiful surroundings amidst mountains, forests and four lochs. In 1869 Queen Victoria wrote “..nothing can surpass the beauty of this spot..” during her visit to Rob Roy MacGregor's final resting place in Balquhidder and “..a beautiful view of Loch Earn. The light on the hills & lake were quite lovely..” on arrival to Lochearnhead. These and other view points have as much to offer today with LETI’s website and tourism service providers on hand to enhance the experience.
So, if you are frustrated with the holiday break searching process, strapped for time or just like the sound of having your accommodation enquiry matched in one easy step, Rob Roy Country may be the perfect spot for you and yours for a scenic break in this year of Homecoming Scotland 2014.
