Our genuine love of people and the stories that connect us on our unique adventures, create an experience saturated in love, friendship, and an appreciation for the beautiful elements that surround us throughout Scotland. 

Without question, Elaine’s old-fashioned upbringing has influenced her style and flair for connecting with people face-to-face, learning about their adventures and hearing interesting stories about their families. She’s more than a chef who cooks, she cooks with love, in every single dish.

Delnabo Estate

We came to stay in Scotland for a while; and our chef arrived with her joyous smile. Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea; all as delicious as they could be. Evening meal was a joy to behold; Elaine you are solid gold.

Thank you so much.



You are simply the best.

It goes without saying that all your food is wonderful, varied a total treat. Above all it’s you we love. Always laughing and smiling, even when just about every machine broke down in the house.

You gave us the best Knoydart holiday ever!
