She and her husband, Norm, have a studio near Myrtle Beach, where they teach when not traveling.

Notes about Walking, Bus Travel and Accommodations:

  • WALKING: There will be a moderate amount of walking on this tour and many of the streets and sidewalks are cobblestone. Castles and other buildings in Scotland are centuries old and there are no “accessibility” laws there. Some buildings we tour will have stairs only, and hills or inclines to get up to them, no elevators, and sometimes no handrails. While this tour is suitable for someone with moderate mobility issues, we recommend traveling with a companion. Ability to board a motor coach bus, and with the understanding that some sites may not be handicapped accessible is required. Stability devices are encouraged. We recommend comfortable, solid-soled hiking-style shoes. If you are unsure if this is for you, please call us to discuss your options.
  • BUSES: The #1 comment we hear about tours in Scotland is about the amount of time spent on the bus. While Scotland is not a huge country, it does take time to get you from one iconic location to the next, and some of the panoramic vistas can only be taken in by driving them. This tour will include bus time of up to 3-4 hours on some days (broken into segments) on a bus.
  • HOTELS: Beds in Scotland are different than in the US. They are often two single beds moved together to form a double or pulled apart for a twin room. Single rooms could be either a double bed or a single bed.
  • Not all of our hotels have air conditioning. Temperatures in September rarely get above 65 degrees and at night can drop into the 40’s. You may have to open a window. That’s Scotland!
