Welcome to Gilmore House, Bed and Breakfast, Blairgowrie, Perthshire, Scotland
This blog is my random ramblings and photos of what is going on in the B&B, my life, but generally my little jaunts out which I hope will give you a taster of all the wonderful excursions to do in our area.

Taste Our Best - Visit Scotland
On Thursday I went down to Scone Palace for a 'Taste our Best' workshop which is a new quality scheme with Visit Scotland. It is all about promoting and using Scottish/local food in your establishment. It lasted a couple of hours and I managed to avoid the 'networking' part of it, unsociable cow! well, I spoke to a couple of people, but I already knew them. In my smugness I can probably say that the B&B has been using 'local' for a good while now and have already invested a bit of time sourcing and promoting it. The laurels though go to the good ladies from P&K council who did all the legwork for getting the 'Perthshire Breakfast' scheme of the ground and inspired me. Always learning though and picked up a few wee tips and leaflets. I won't know if the B&B can get the 'Taste our Best' accreditation until it has it's next visit from the quality and standards inspector.
On Friday I went to Glenshee ski-ing, loads of snow at the moment.
