1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
The most memorable part of the holiday was during dolphin-watching, when a baby dolphin with itís' mother, dived in and out of the water, around both sides of our boat. They swam very close to us. Sarah, who steered the boat, knew the sea area near Cromarty and the Black Isle extremely well. She gave us an informative and exhilarating boat journey.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
This is a bespoke holiday so discuss with Deborah, the marine biologist, exactly what you would like to experience. She was very attentive to individual preferences and requests. If you get a chance, stay in a luxurious tent that includes a double-bed, couch, carpet and cupboards!
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?
The experience of picking pea-pods at Findhorn certainly benefited the local people since we were able to enjoy a delicious lunch with the community. The staff at were very knowledgeable and respectful of the dolphins' environment. The wholesome food at Newbold house was locally produced, much of it in the beautiful gardens.
