Heritage House in the Highlands
Greetings from the Scottish Highlands!
We are a Scottish husband and wife team who together with our 5 children warmly welcome visitors to the Highlands into our home to sample some real genuine local Scottish food, hospitality and experiences! We absolutely love meeting new people to share our knowledge of Scottish history, heritage and traditions, food, drinks, good humour and general bonhomie! In sharing (on a very personal level) our wonderful traditions and culture we hopefully give our guests something very memorable and a little piece of Scotland in their hearts for ever! We are very proud of the fact that the experiences we currently offer are some of the highest rated on the Airbnb experiences platform and we welcome you to have a look!! (check out our Celtic handfasting ceremony at https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/814566 , our family dinners at https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/707821 and our jewellery making classes at https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/844569 )
Devastatingly our current venue is no longer an option so now the Camerons seek a new home and experience venue that we can fill with love, life and laughter. As the world changes people crave a more human connection to the destinations they visit and above all we want to continue to welcome travellers from around the world to share a wee piece of this magical area with.
We have found the perfect hidden gem!! Wardlaw Country House; built in 1776 it shares its Jacobite history with its neighbour, Wardlaw Mausoleum which is believed to be the final resting place of Lord Lovat, The Old Fox. It has fallen into a little disrepair and requires some TLC to bring it back! That’s where we come in! We are ideally placed to bring our existing Highland experiences and more here and turn it into a family run historic building of significant Jacobite importance for visitors from around the globe. There are 10 bedrooms, many reception rooms and just under 2 acres of gardens that are perfect for handfasting ceremonies, afternoon teas etc and plenty of room for our planned cut flower beds and raised vegetable beds for our guest meals and lunches ensuring our visitors have the best of produce all year round! There are large stables at the property that we plan to renovate into 3 elegant and traditional Highland holiday apartments.
As passionate ambassadors for Scotland we both have many skills to bring to this project! James is a mountaineer with a keen interest in politics, sociology, photography, the outdoors and his dinner party “tall tales” are legendary!! Kacey is a History and English literature graduate, drama teacher, historical tour guide, self-proclaimed whisky connoisseur, foodie, flower arranger and lover of Celtic folklore!
This is where YOU come in!! We cannot do this alone and need to raise £420,000 towards the purchase and renovation of this wonderful historic venue dating back to post Culloden battle and any amount of help would be so genuinely welcomed and above all appreciated!
We are offering various gifts as way of a wee thank you and are delighted to speak to any major benefactors about taking on board equity in our company that will continue to run and operate experiences from our new venue.
Currently there is no one in Scotland offering travellers a chance to meet a genuine family in such surroundings with such great, funny musings on family life, culture and the way we live. Tales of our 5 children and the universal challenges we face have now been spread over the world and we would love you to be a part of our family history too!
To all the lovely people from all over the world who we have met I sincerely hope we meet again and any help you can give or if you know anyone who may visit Scotland in the future we can offer some great experiences. Check out our website, www.heritagehousehighland.com
Thank you for your time, stay safe and Best wishes!!
