Now it’s even easier to cruise Loch Lomond – thanks to Kirsty Weir!

Kirsty Weir is delighted with the success of her latest project to promote her client Sweeney’s Cruises and make life easier for their own customers.

She has set up special discount travel passes and a ‘Kids Go Free’ initiative in conjunction with ScotRail and Sweeney’s.

This means that adults can travel to the Loch by rail and take advantage of a welcome 20 per cent discount – and their children travel for free.

It is so easy for visitors to get on a train at Queen Street station in Glasgow, and in under an hour arrive at one of the most iconic and beautiful lochs in Scotland.

After a scenic journey they arrive at Balloch, where it’s a short two minute walk to the boat. Once on board they will enjoy the spectacular scenery after a hassle-free journey – no worries about parking or traffic! Kirsty’s scheme means the train takes the strain – and the visitor saves money too.

Queen Elizabeth passengers to visit Ardkinglas House

Kirsty Weir’s client, the historic Ardkinglas House, will play host to passengers from the Queen Elizabeth – Cunard’s newest and most luxurious liner – when the ship visits Scotland this summer.

Kirsty arranged for passengers to be collected by luxury coach at their berth in Greenock Ocean Terminal. From there they will be driven round to Argyll, and not only enjoy the scenic journey, but also have the services of a Blue Badge guide on board.

At Ardkinglas they will be given a tour of the magnificent house and beautiful gardens and then experience a masterclass in oyster shucking, from the staff of the world-famous Loch Fyne Oysters.

Kirsty said:

As Queen Elizabeth passengers they will be used to luxury surroundings and first class service, so the visit to Ardkinglas House makes a perfect match.

Kirsty Weir Hopes to Rally an Entire Town

One of Kirsty’s recent initiatives is to establish her home town of Dunoon as a recognised WorldHost Destination. She has organised a preliminary meeting with the organisation and some local businesses with a view to kick-starting the programme. WorldHost customer service training has been used to train over 160,000 people in the UK and one million people worldwide. Becoming a WorldHost Recognised Destination means your town or city is recognised as providing a top-notch welcome to tourists and local visitors. 25 per cent of business in the area are trained to WorldHost standards, and they in turn train at least 50 per cent of their customer-facing staff. It’s an ambitious project but if anyone can get it up and running, it’s Kirsty Weir.

The magazine is read all over the world in, amongst other places, Canada, New Zealand and Australia, as well as of course the UK.

Garry says: “Kirsty Weir, born and bred in Dunoon, made for a perfect guide. She prepared for me an extensive itinerary, but it was soon apparent that what I was about to see was the tip of an iceberg of attractions that Cowal can offer. I would see quite a lot of the east side, but the west will be left for another day.”
