The Beautiful Land
Hello, I am Victor from Moscow I am 56. We spent a spring holiday in Scotland on a homestay. Would you like to know our impressions? - it was tremendous and I, overfilled with emotions can't write just one comment about it. One thing - it would be better to try it for yourself.
First of all I would like to say that a homestay has many advantages over using a traditional tour operator:
. free time, flexible and independent
.individual guide
.studying and improving language
.view the country from the inside
.make new friends
Long before we arrived Gillian helped us to plan our trips, organised transfers and planned all our lessons. The house is an old 19th century cottage, not large but comfortable - and it became our home for 10 days. The weather can be sunny and then rainy in the next hour so you can relax by the fire and drink tea or coffee.
I would like to underline that this is the most effective way to improve a language if you are already intermediate. Being in the Highlands we visited places of our dreams, breathing the air of Robert Burns' poetry with its hills and glens (valleys), waterfalls and rocks - a beautiful land.
Gillian and Greg showed us many interesting places, told us curious and fabulous stories and also introduced us to their friends. They became our friends too, gave us a part of their hearts and we repaid them with warmth and love. Sveta and Victor

A good choice-Una buena elección
A green country, a charming village where nobody speaks Spanish and a good teacher who understands my needs. It was a very good experience and it was worth to spend time there. At last I got to dream in English. Ty G&G I hope see you soon in Tenerife

My great Highland experience
I spent 3 weeks with Gillian and her husband, Greg, and cannot praise their hospitality enough. As I am particularly interested in the history of Scotland, Gillian organised several excursions to experience this amazing and picturesque part of the world, learning more about its history and learning English at the same time. I felt that Gillian’s approach to teaching English suited me very well and I have learnt a lot during my stay. I will definitely go back and visit them again!

my stay
Sono un'insegnante italiana di liceo linguistico e ho trascorso una settimana allo Highlandhomestays di Gillian. L'esperienza è stata molto positiva, ha rilanciato il mio inglese orale e mi ha dato una nuova prospettiva sulla storia, cultura e geografia della Scozia.
I greatly enjoyed our lessons and conversations, the meals together, the trips, the friendly atmosphere, the pub, the Scottish dancing,the beautiful landscapes, the sea air and the long walks on the endless beach.
Gillian is a very prepared teacher, she can clarify any topic and is very outgoing.
Her husband Greg is very kind and helpful. Together they make you feel at home, a Scottish home!

If you you want to contact me for references, you can ask Gillian for my email or phone number.

My son's homestay in Nairn
Hello Gillian and Greg,
I would like to thank you for your taking care about Matěj. He came home very excited by his stay in your place and his first sentence was:
"Please, mum, I want to go there next year again." I think that is the
best evaluation you can get. So, thank you very much.
I also appreciate the lessons report, you've sent me. It is very helpful for his further education. I'm also glad that your lessons were
interesting for him, because at the beginning Matěj was very surprised
he should to learn during holiday :-), but later he told me he likes the
lessons with you. And according to your report he made some progress, so it was worthy. Thank you.
