At the start of the 2017 season we received a letter telling us that someone had nominated us for the Most Hospitable B&B/Guest House Highlands & Islands Tourism Award 2017. We were surprised and delighted that someone had enjoyed their stay with us so much, they felt compelled to nominate us for an award. So, we had to write a few words about how good we are, which is difficult for us British! And submit it for judging by a panel of judges. Imagine our shock when we were shortlisted to one of four!

So, on the 3rd November we went to the Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards dinner in Inverness. Unfortunately, we didn’t win our category, but we are so chuffed to have been nominated for it and then shortlisted as a finalist. We met some great business owners at our table Portavadie, who won the award for Best Accommodation Provider and Scapa Scuba who were finalists in the Best Outdoor/Adventure Experience. These are great businesses if you’re staying in Argyll or wanting some adventure in Orkney.

We have to thank all our staff, suppliers and sub-contractors for helping us make Rossmor such a great place to stay!
