“ Dear Gavin, Thank you for making our trip around Scotland so special. You are a great representative of Scotland with an incredible resource of knowledge. Thank you so much. We all loved our sailing and you contributed to that".

Sheila, Richard, Ken and Mark.

The weekend was highly informative and entertaining. You struck exactly the right balance. I think we would be hard pushed to find anyone with as great a depth of knowledge and as perpetually happy as yourself!

 If our Scotland trips run separately in the future, I will certainly be approaching you!    

Best wishes,  Nicky
