Americans Mad about MullWed 30 Sep, 2009 // Tartan Silk
TOURISM at Torosay Castle & Gardens on the Isle of Mull has flourished this summer thanks to an increase in the number of American visitors keen to experience the baronial splendour of the castle.
Despite current home-grown negativity surrounding the recent release of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, Torosay has seen visitor numbers rise and tour groups from America have never been happier.
Owner of Torosay Castle & Gardens, Chris James said “The love affair many American people have with Scotland has not been diminished in any way of late. I have taken a number of Globus tours around the castle and gardens over recent weeks and have had heard no such nonsense from any of our American visitors”
The castle, which is more than 150 years old, and its unique gardens have long attracted visitors from both the UK and abroad. But this summer, owner Chris James has noticed a rise in the number of Americans making the journey across the Pond to sample a slice of historic island life.
