Of course, many people have their plans and activity ideas I have not even mentioned. Likewise, many people on holiday are here to relax and plan every day depending on how they feel or what the weather is doing. Equally, many people like personal advice on what to do and we are always happy to find time to advise people.
Here at Blervie, we also recommend activities, walks and ideas we have done ourselves to speak from experience. If you are unsure or need help, please let us know – we are here to help.
