A luxury Edwardian granite guest house on the banks of the River Dee has achieved the highest Quality Assurance (QA) accolades from VisitScotland.The national tourism organisation presented owners of Lys-Na-Greyne, Garry and Joyce Welsh, with its 5* Quality Assurance guest house award, in recognition of its exceptional standards. At the same time, it was presented with a Taste Our Best award.
Built in 1912 for Sir Francis Outram Bt, Lys-Na-Greyne is nestled in the tranquil wooded conservation area at the west end of Aboyne. Sitting on the north bank of the River Dee, its westerly outlook provides stunning views up the Dee valley.
Set in over three acres of mature gardens in Rhu-Na-Haven Road, it offers visitors luxury bed and breakfast accommodation in the heart of Royal Deeside – an area rich with natural beauty and offering outdoor activities all year round.
Developed and improved over the past 25 years, VisitScotland’s Quality Assurance (QA) schemes are world-leading and provide a trusted, independent and impartial source of information for visitors. They allow businesses not just to meet visitor expectations, but exceed them.
QA can open the door to new customers. It is a powerful marketing tool and works well with online review sites in using an independent perspective to measure visitor experience against tried and tested criteria so visitors know exactly what to expect.
Newly refurbished to the highest standards, Lys-Na-Greyne currently offers three en-suite bedrooms, one of which has a balcony and walk-in wardrobe. An additional three rooms will be available by spring 2016.An ideal base for tourists exploring Royal Deeside, it is within easy reach of the city for business visitors.
Owners Garry and Joyce Welsh said:
“We are immensely proud to have received this 5* award from VisitScotland. As a start-up business, it is a huge boost and encourages us to strive to maintain this high standard.“There has been an enormous amount of hard work not just by ourselves, but by family and friends alike and this makes all that work worthwhile. Being able to offer visitors to Royal Deeside the opportunity to enjoy the area in such a wonderful setting is a real privilege.”
