How do we measure it?

Our Craigengar Lodge was a finalist in 2 categories of the prestigious EHHA ( European Holiday Home Association ) 2021 Awards. Best Green Holiday Home as well as Best Accessible Holiday Home. So Step One up the Success achievement ladder. But sadly we did not go further up the ladder to win either category. But hey-ho, there's always hope for the future.

Crosswoodhill has just this past week submitted an entry for the Self-Catering Category of the Scottish Thistle Awards, the Oscars of Scottish Tourism, recognising and celebrating excellence. We will need to wait several months whilst the judges sift through a large number of entries to select Regional finalists and winners. It's a time-consuming task for them, but also for those of us finessing our entries., trying to squeeze as much relevant insight as word allowances permit into answering the questions. But even if we don't quite clinch a trophy, entering awards is of real benefit. It makes me walk through our business, view it from a guest's perspective. Are we delivering what guests are really looking for, not just giving them an ordinary experience but offering them a memorably amazing one? Are we seeking, listening and acting on feedback? Are there even more ways we can stand out from the competition? Be a business at the top of its game?

In 2022 it has been so wonderful to welcome back past guests, some of whom stayed with us as long ago as 10 or more years. And I love welcoming all the fresh faces. And lapping up their appreciation. Scotland is a fantastic place to visit, now and in the future. All of it, not just here.
