In the Heart of the Scottish Highlands Sept 10-23, 2014 Anyone out there going too.Punky


Premium Email Subscriber May 30, 2014 at 12:40 PM

For the July 2 - July 15 program. Anyone leaving from San Francisco Airport?


Jackie Switzer Mar 31, 2014 at 12:31 PM

Booked for this trip (13-26 August) and on to the Ireland trip (26 August - 4 September). Anyone else doing one or both trips?


Marylee McGregor Mar 19, 2014 at 04:28 PM

Does anyone know if the rooms at the Aigas Field Centre have hairdryers?
Wendy Wartes Mar 19, 2014 at 08:35 PM

Yes they are available. You will so enjoy this trip, our best ever.
Marylee McGregor Mar 19, 2014 at 08:59 PM

Wendy, thanks for the quick response, AND the answer I was hoping for. I try to pack light, so things like that are not on my usual list. Everything I've heard about this trip sounds wonderful. And since some of my ancestors came from "near Inverness" (to quote the family historian)....
Marylee McGregor Mar 19, 2014 at 09:01 PM

And, Wendy, I see that earlier you said your husband wore a sport coat to dinner several nights. Did you change from "usual" "visiting the Highlands" clothes to something a bit dressier?
Wendy Wartes Mar 20, 2014 at 12:58 AM

A sport coat isn't necessary. Some wore them but most men didn't. Often you go right in to dinner when returning from a fieldtrip, maybe with a bit of time to spruce up before drinks are served. Tea is at 4:30 even if out hiking, drinks at 6 and dinner at 6:30 with optional lectures at 8pm.
Wendy Wartes Mar 20, 2014 at 01:01 AM

BTW we went in August and there was no rain the entire 13 days so the only things we packed and didn't use were raingear.
Marylee McGregor Mar 20, 2014 at 09:31 AM

Wendy, that is good news about no rain. And thanks so much for all your comments-the "post afternoon field trip" schedule is really helpful just in terms of visualizing how things work out.
Elizabeth Ferguson-Pfeil Jun 29, 2014 at 05:16 PM

I should have come here first. Been hunting all over for hairdryer info! Now i can take it out of my suitcase. thanks!


Laura Fleck Jan 29, 2014 at 11:55 AM

I'm on the Sept 10th 2014 trip then going on to Orkney and Shetland for Wool Week.
Anyone else doing the same?
I appreciate all the tips Punky
Marylee McGregor Mar 13, 2014 at 12:45 PM

Laura, that extension for Wook Week sounds wonderful. But, I'm on the July 30-Aug. 12 version. Went for possibly warmer weather. Be sure to write about all your experiences afterwards. Marylee
Marylee McGregor Mar 13, 2014 at 12:45 PM

Well, if I could just spell Wool!


Harriet Simons Aug 07, 2013 at 11:28 AM

Is there anyone on the August 14 trip interested in going to a classical music concert on August 16, our "free" evening?
Jackie Switzer Apr 11, 2014 at 04:53 PM

I would like to have more info
Harriet Simons Apr 11, 2014 at 06:51 PM

This post was sent in 2013 for the 2013 trip.
Jackie Switzer Apr 11, 2014 at 11:43 PM

lol....if all else fails, read the whole thing...


Anne Reinhardt Jul 26, 2013 at 11:08 PM

Paulette, I'm sorry but I haven't checked this site for awhile so disdnt see your post > Im from Saskatchewan Canada and my friend is from Vancouver B.C. We are flying on our own to Glasgow on the 13th arrivin on the 14th and taking the train tio Edinburgh. We couldn't get into thr hotel that night so are staying at another. You will love this trip. We are looking forward to our second to Aigas. See you in Edinburgh!


Anne Reinhardt Jun 11, 2013 at 03:03 PM

My friend and I did this trip about 15 years ago and decided then if we ever saw it again we would go. This year we have booked for Aug 15th and look forward to getting back to Aigas . This is an unforgettable experience and I am looking forward to seeing Sir John and Lady Lucy again!
Paulette Zubel Jul 16, 2013 at 05:55 PM

Hi Anne,
Paulette Zubel Jul 16, 2013 at 05:57 PM

My friend and I are going on the Aug. 15 trip too! We're from Grand Rapids Michigan. Where are you from? Neither my friend nor I have even been abroad, so we're both excited. The trip sounds fabulous!
Wendy Wartes Jul 23, 2013 at 03:31 PM

You will so love the door to door service. We spent two days in Germany so weren't picked up at the airport but the bus ride was short and easy. The food is wonderful and people so special. They really know what they are doing. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via facebook if it is easier. Wendy Wartes
