We have some exciting news to share with everybody! Last Friday an email popped up in our inbox delivering some very unexpected, but lovely news for us.
The email was from Red Sky Productions who make the BBC Scotland awards series 'Scotland's Greatest Escape' . In it, it said that a member of the public has nominated Gareloch Cottage for this year's series!
Celebrating the country's best holiday accommodation it features unique breaks selected to suit all budgets. 'Scotland's Greatest Escape' takes viewers on a journey to the very best holiday escapes that Scotland has to offer. Each one is judged by the accommodation, activities on offer, customer service and overall experience.
Each episode examines the top three destinations in their category such as best family stay and spend one night at each of the short listed properties to judge specific elements of their stay. The holiday with the highest score goes forward to the grand final.
Could Gareloch Cottage be Scotland's Greatest Escape? It would be fantastic for Argyll and Bute to win.
There's a way to go yet and we've got a lot of well deserved competition. To be honest, we're just thrilled we've had this amazing recognition after just 13 months of hosting. We love our little holiday let and hosting guests from all over the UK (and some from overseas too) has been an absolute pleasure.
The next stage of the process is to complete the application form we've been sent. Once in, their panel of industry experts will whittle down to a shortlist to appear on the show.
