Some rollicking reels & jigs from ‘RuRa’ was a perfect end to a perfect holiday.

Two wonderful Irish ladies rang us from Ayr while on holiday from Ireland. They wanted to visit Skye and SEALL’s ‘Rura’concert, but could not find accommodation. We gave them some local details and contact with Visit Sleat and by the next day they had booked their ‘Rura’ tickets.  Afterward they wrote:

“Just to say that we had a fantastic time on Skye, including taking the scenic routes around the north & south of the island. The physical features were astounding. We were based in Sleat,  for a couple of nights, staying with the lovely Flora & Duncan MacDonald.  The little harbour at Isleornsay was so pretty! Sleat is beautiful.  We also had a lazy, late-evening stroll, on an amazing beach on the scenic route that Flora recommended to us, that starts at Sabhal Mor Ostaig. We were very fortunate. weather-wise, during our entire trip, with my having to put on suntan-lotion on two occasions!

And to finish up with some rollicking reels & jigs from ‘RuRa’ was a perfect end to a perfect holiday.

Your attentiveness, efficiency & welcome, Duncan and Visit Sleat, were very much appreciated by us, Nuala and Vera, and we will hold wonderful memories of our trip to the Highlands.
Keep up the good work.
