We are looking forward very much to next year’s holiday. We will be celebrating our 30 years of happy married life together and Devon and Cornwall paths might be the perfect way to celebrate.

Speyside Way, July 2018

We really enjoyed this walk, not least this was due to the efficient organisation by Mickledore. Thank you very much.

Speyside Way, June 2018

Would you use Mickledore again? Absolutely. Particularly enjoyed your selection of B&Bs/hotels.

Speyside Way, September 2017

Thanks for excellent organising. We loved it. The weather was mixed, but mostly good.

Speyside Way, August 2017

Thank you very much for scheduling the walking tour for us and looking after all of the associated accommodation and luggage transfer details. Your information package for the trip arrived well in advance of our departure date so we had everything we needed to prepare for the vacation.  We also enjoyed the various restaurants that you recommended and the suggested activities for our rest day.

Speyside Way, June 2017

An excellent walk enhanced by good luck with weather and the very attractive River Spey. Thank you for your excellent work on this for us. The luggage transfers worked really well.

Speyside Way, September 2015

Thanks for a great holiday- we really enjoyed it.

Speyside Way, August 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed the Speyside Way, with the spur walk to Tomintoul being a highlight, particularly as the weather was warm and sunny. On the coastal walk from Buckie to Tug Net, seals and dolphins were sighted and the coastal scenery was impressive.

No problems encountered with any Mickledore arrangements, and all the natives were very friendly and helpful. We cheated on the last day and caught the steam train from Boat of Garten to Aviemore – a highly recommended way to finish the Speyside Way.

Speyside Way, September 2013

As usual, we had a fantastic holiday and the weather was surprisingly kind – instructions, maps and accommodation – very good as we have come to expect! I would like to single out Speybank B&B at Craigellachie for excellent rating. This really was one of the best b&bs we have stayed in the UK (and we have stayed in a good number). The attention to detail from the high spec of the bathroom and the comfortable bedroom to the provision of local toiletries was excellent. There was a comfortable sitting room with tea and home cooked goodies which was greedily welcome after our walk from Fochabers. The choice at breakfast catered for all tastes and was well cooked. There was even lovely tablet to help us on our walk the next day. All in all a fantastic experience – we have already recommended this to our family and friends.
