Scotland Features on Princess Cruises’ weblog “50 Essential Experiences”

Cruise Scotland was delighted to learn recently that Princess Cruises was featuring Scotland among the first entries on its weblog “50 Essential Experiences”

In a letter to the Scottish Government, Dawn Haghighi, the company’s Assistant General Counsel, wrote “We are especially excited about this particular article as it was written by our Senior Vice President of Yield Management, Deanna Austin. Deanna writes a heartfelt passage about her recent cruise which visited Scotland, her stay at Tulloch Castle in Dingwall, near Invergordon, as well as her family’s connection to the ancient fortress. She gave a moving description of her family walking on the same grounds – surrounded by wide lawns and beautiful rolling hills – as their ancestors walked centuries before.

Responses to Deanna’s blog are very positive, and readers have shared how touched they were by her story and how they too wish to visit this truly remarkable destination. Many more readers share their own memories about Tulloch Castle, the magical Highlands and Scotland, both in years past and in recent visits. We are pleased that Deana’s blog has inspired many readers to put Scotland at the top of their list of places to visit.” 

Princess Cruises are regular visitors to Scotland with over 253,000 travellers having visited Scotland on one of their ships since 2005. This year a further 74,000 travellers -  more than ever before – will visit Scotland with Princess Cruises.
