Heatherlea Awarded Five Stars
25 September 2009
Heatherlea (Scotland) Ltd, Nethy Bridge, have long been one of the best known names in Scottish birdwatching holidays. We are today delighted to announce they we have been awarded a coveted five star grading by visitScotland. This is the highest level of Quality Assurance award, only given to those operators found to be ‘Exceptional’ by the assessors.
Heatherlea are only the second to achieve this very high level, and indeed the only wildlife operators on the Scottish mainland to be awarded five stars.
Heatherlea co-founder Kevin Shaw said ‘the award of 5 stars is a fantastic achievement, well-earned by our dedicated team. We have always set high standards for our days in the field, and our birding guides and hotel staff thoroughly deserve this recognition’.
Heatherlea are about to celebrate their 20th season of wildlife watching holidays in the Scottish Highlands, and Kevin said the award couldn’t have come at a better time. ‘In difficult trading conditions, we are marketing very hard to ensure a great year for our 20th anniversary. We already have more advance bookings for Mountview Hotel in 2010 than at this stage in any previous year, and this award will help confirm our strong position as market leaders in Scottish wildlife holidays’.
‘Independent accreditation is very important to us’, said Kevin, ‘because our customers are well-informed and discerning. They recognise good value and will always prefer high quality and good service. Our award can only be good news for Scottish tourism in general’.
