Exploring our family heritage in Scotland, thanks to WorldMark & RCI

Carr Bridge at Aviemore

Carr Bridge, at a wee village just north of our Scandanavian Village Resort at Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands

The time had come to research our family history in Scotland.

We rang RCI and asked if there were any vacancies available in Scotland for 2 weeks during May/June.  We were able to get one week at the Scandanavian Village Resort at Aviemore and the following week at the Moness Country Club at Aberfeldy.

These reservations were made 13 months in advance.  This enabled us to plan our 11 weeks abroad around these 2 weeks.

Aviemore is the main village for access to the ski slopes of the Cairngorm mountains in the Scottish highlands.  We hired a car from Edinburgh so every day we were able to do day trips and explore the highlands.

Aberfeldy is further south in the beautiful Perthshire.  Once again we explored the area, travelling over many narrow country roads through scenic glens and quaint villages.

The Scandanavian Village Resort was a very comfortable, self -contained one bedroom unit looking over the snow clad mountains.  Our accommodation at the Moness Country Club was a self catering town house with a bar/restaurant on site.

Something we have never come across before in our travels is a charge for your electricity use.  Perhaps this is a Scottish thing.

If it wasn’t for our membership to WorldMark and RCI we would not have been able to explore Scotland and visit towns connected to our heritage.
