Very good itinerary in spite of Covid restrictions and the cancellation of the West Highland train journey to Oban and the ferry crossing to Bute. Both situations dealt with quite promptly. Stonefield Castle suited us very well with good food and genuine old fashioned hospitality. Wonderful position and outstanding views.

Although this was meant to be a train experience, our first journey in a train was on the return day. There were problems with a train strike going out and we had to make our journey by coach. Our coach also was refused entry on a short ferry two days later, because of its wheel configuration, involving a long coach journey (some 6 hours) to get to our planned destination! All of this spoilt the trip somewhat, but it seems it was for reasons beyond our guide's control.

There was disruption by Scotrail which caused us inconvenience. The Hotel Indigo was adequate but the evening meals were very poor. We were unable to get onto the ferry at Tarbert as the bus was too big,this involved a very long journey by road

Enjoyed the whole experience but train cancelled from Glasgow to Oban. The ferry did not allow the coach on from Tarbet to Bute so the driver had a long day but it was otherwise a good day. The driver and Christine Pretty were extremely helpful and calm during the trip. Very good hotels but in the Indigo they were suffering from staff shortages - people on furlough caused problems, not their fault. Staff very good otherwise. Stansfield Castle very special.

I have completed a post-trip survey, i think. That should suffice.
