Good morning <<First Name>>, 

Positive news in this week’s edition on Scotland’s tourism and hotels sector, so keep those bookings coming! !

If you’re stuck for weekend break ideas, there’s my home patch – spectacular Rob Roy country at the top of the Trossachs National Park. Kim Proven and other local entrepreneurs have got together to form the  Loch Earn Tourism Initiative and have produced an outstandingly helpful leaflet – where to stay, what to see, who to ring, how to  book. It covers all the bases – Monachyle Mhor, Mhor 84, Mansewood Country Guest House, Lochearnhead Hotel, Creagan House among many others. Full details at www.robroycountry.com and well worth a visit.  Keen gardeners should make a point of visiting  the region’s most charming nursery – the Riverside Garden Centre at Tallybannocher, by Comrie, run by plant expert and writer Jonathan MacDonald.

OK, plugs over, here we go:
