Leaving a freezing London on Monday night (-8 with windshield factor)  Andrew and I arrived in Inverness to a almost balmy -2 degrees to start a 2 day meeting with a new client in Elgin (whisky country).  More that 40 distilleries within a 20 miles radius.  This bodes well for future client meetings.

This part of Scotland is breathtakingly beautiful and I really wanted to share a fantastic and sloppy idea for any of you hopeless romantics out there.  Whilst driving to the clients home, I saw this incredible seaplane swoop along side us to land on Loch Lomond.  That in itself was a jaw dropping moment at close proximity.  The client told me that you can take this luxury seaplane and fly over the highlands to the historic braes of Balquhidder to have a sumptuous lunch at the award winning Monachyle Mhor Hotel.

You are welcomed at the top of Loch Voile’s shore with a champagne reception and then ferried for a gourmet lunch by celebrity chef Tom Lewis.

Following lunch one boards the seaplane to go to The stunning Cameron House Hotel for cocktails and dinner in the Boat house on the shores of the loch.  Bliss.  Get those tickets booked!
