Question: What in your mind makes an exclusive use property different from a hotel?

Lynne Lino: Exclusive use means privacy, personalised service, attention to detail, bespoke, above and beyond – all words you won’t get whilst hosting your event in a standard hotel.

Question: In your opinion what are some of the best experiences to enjoy when visiting Aberdeenshire/Royal Deeside?

Lynne Lino: The activities are endless.  From the many whisky distilleries and over 50 golf courses to private food tours, castles and just about any outdoor pursuit you can dream up.

Question: What dish in Scotland would you say a visitor must try?

Lynne Lino: Haggis! if you don’t fancy a real one there are vegetarian ones running about the hills.

Question: What drink in Scotland would you say a visitor must try?

Lynne Lino: the obvious choice is Whisky but it isn’t for everyone so it would be a missed opportunity not to try the many fantastic Scottish gins on offer from all parts of Scotland. Personally, I love the Botanist, or Caorunn made with the beautiful botanics of our fabulous country.  We also have some of the purest water on earth.  Speyside Water or Deeside Water are just over the hills from us, and I challenge anyone to find a more perfect water fresh from the stream.

Question: What motivates you in this industry?

Lynne Lino : Pride and Passion.  Our country is amazing.  I meet people  all over the world who say “I would love to go to Scotland for a vacation”.  I usually say “well, just go. Whats stopping you?!!  I have the perfect place for you to stay ”
