Jamie and Claire 2015 tour dates announced!

Sin sibh a luchdh leanntan!  See youze, Diana Gabaldon Fans!  I have just posted the tour dates for 2015 for the Jamie and Claire tour.

The true "Colum MacKenzie" with our May crowd.

We're still having fun with this year, and our new optional "extensions", but I am already getting requests for 2015.
So, they're up on www.jamieandclairetour.co.uk  for your delectation and the old "can I, can't I?" decision.  Maybe this is your year...

What's NOT there just yet are:
~ the optional extensions that were such fun this year.  I'm still working on those.  I'll put them up soon.
~  The Romantic Borders tour, which we have just come back from.  Quote from a guest:  "I had no idea the Borders would be so exciting!"   There will be the tour date posted soon AND a "What's it like?" video, once we've had a chance to edit it up.
~ Also not posted yet is the Dragonfly In Amber tour.  I'll get to that when I can as well.
~  Furtherly (not a word!) not posted is the Western Isles tour, which for the third year we will be offering in conjunction with Mara Freeman, noted Celtic spirituality author and teacher.  You can find details at Celtic Spirit Journeys.com

Now, I must just get back to other more pressing matters, like the impending tour in August and Sept.  Busy, busy....

By the way, have you seen the first few videos in the "Introducing Scotland" series that we have made?  It's a side-interest thing where we showcase some things about Scotland that you probably didn't know about.  
You'll find them on my MacKenzie Adventures Youtube channel  and I bet you'll find them interesting

Enjoy the summer, Outlandish People, and the websites.
Muchos regardos,
Samantha
(Now where did I put that stack of booking forms...?)

Piping Till The Cows Come Home


We get a visit at the Storyteller's Cottage from a Hawaiian Celt.


Hamish is a Cornishman living on Maui.  For many years he has been everything Celtic on the island - he hosted a radio show all about Celtic music, he is a journalist, a piper, a promoter of bands, an stunning artist, an importer of Celtic wares.  All the Scottish and Irish bands coming to the islands contact him.  He is also the cover-artist for the 50th anniversary album of the Irish Rovers.

In our garden in July, while on a flying visit, he treated us, and the cows (aka The Boys) to some piping.

Introducing Scotland - the Sma' Glen




Part one of a "documentary" series we're making called Introducing Scotland, where we make small video pieces about unusual things in Scotland.  These videos are not tied to the tours (as in a video blog), but more to seasonal events, off-beat locations and culture interest.

Here we go with "Introducing Scotland - The Sma' Glen"

July Tour - Totch Not The Cat




The July tour is underway.  We have called it "Totch Not The Cat Bot A Glove".  This being the motto of Clan MacPherson, whose land we have spent some time in.  

We have a fine crew of 14 from Canada and the States all eager to discover the Scotland of Outlander for themselves.  

Here's a wee short video of some highlights of the tour by day two, captured at dinner.
