Thank you for a wonderful 8 days.  It was even better than we expected, We really appreciated Colin & Pauline’s attention to the details of safety and comfort.  Could happily repeat the whole experience – and hope we can some day.  Thank you for the thoughtfulness of our anniversary celebration too.  Janet & Wayne, Sydney, Australia, September 2016


This sailing expedition has wildly surpassed my expectations.  I could not have wished for better company, scenery and kind hospitality.  Would return in an instant.  Jason, Canada, August 2016


Your hospitality is remarkable – you made it the most relaxing holiday ever.  Roger, August 2016


The best “August” therapy ever – just wish I’d discovered you 10 years ago!  Christine, August 2016

Thank you for a lovely week (and many previous weeks), even sunshine on Iona! We hope to be back.  John & Pat, Ayrshire, August 2016


What a fantastic week!  We have had a great time and really enjoyed seeing puffins and dolphins.  The cooking has been excellent and the evening very entertaining.  Thanks and look forward to seeing you again!  Simon & Heather, Wiltshire, July 2016


Another wonderful cruise with great company.  We were thrilled to see lots of minke whales off Lewis and thousands of puffins and seals and otters! Can’t wait to come back.  Paul and Christine, Falkirk, July 2016


Church Cave on Rona will remain in my memories forever.  Chris S, Argyll, July 2016


200 mile trip over far too quickly. Great scenery, great wildlife including minke whale and swimming deer.  Great company, new friends. Totally relaxing.  Andy & Collete, July 2016


Fandabbydozy! What a wonderful experience for a totally  inexperienced sailor.  Such an exciting way to see the “wee Isles”. Brilliant all round experience – great skippering and fantastic food.  A huge thank you for a fantastic time.  Margaret & Gerry, July 2016


The best of hosts with a bouquet of firsts…..Treshnish, Canna, Loch Coruisk and minke!  The wonders of the outdoors with the greatest of comfort both in accommodation and fine food. Pauline C, Aberdeen, July 2016


Another fantastic trip, thank you.  The Shiants, were beautiful, teeming with wildlife.  Good company, good food and good sailing made for a wonderful experience.  Nick & Christine, Leicestershire, July 2016


Fantastically sunny, funny and educational! Hannah, June 2016


Thank you both for a fantastic time. Great sailing and unremittent hospitality!  Paul & Beryl, Halesworth, June 2016


Wonderful cruise, great yacht, perfect crew.  Dolphins and puffins on Treshnish one of the most memorable experiences ever. So well looked after – thank you very much.  Tricia & John, Scottish Borders, May 2016


What a wonderful time! You brought such charm, humour and knowledge to this experience.  We were so appreciative – especially getting on to Eigg. No doubts – we’ll be back.  Dave & Elaine, Canada, May 2016


Fantastic trip, my first ever sail and “Wow” – what an experience!  The boat is amazing as are Colin and Pauline. Catching the lobster was the pinnacle however the “house band“ was a close second!  For those who have never sailed before and want to try something different, this is the holiday for you. Can’t recommend it more.  Anita, Jo, Gary and Tony, Exmoor, September 2015


Well up to the usual standards. Thank you so much for yet another fantastic holiday. David & Julia, Somerset, September 2015


Fabulous second trip – much enjoyed, well fed, great company – maybe there will be a third!  Jaki & Michael, July 2015


Wonderful time, thank you! I had no idea what to expect but have loved every minute and will definitely be sailing again in the future. Thanks for being such great hosts.  Karen, Yorkshire, June 2015


A memorable 40th anniversary maritime experience!  Trish and Norman, May 2015


We had a memorable week’s cruise on a beautiful yacht in very pleasant company and with a skipper and skipperette, most impeccable. We will remember the week with pleasure and love the scenery.  Sad to leave!  Roger & Monique, de Finister, France, September 2014


Super boat, super sailing, …enjoyed the educational part – the stories, “history lessons” and THE TASTINGS!  Alessandro and Erling, Denmark and London, September 2014


Many, many memories under sail and a huge thanks to Colin and Pauline for being wonderful hosts – kind, patient and very, very welcoming.  The Allen family, France, August 2014


Another fabulous trip with Pauline and Colin. We’ve had so many great experiences over the 10 days. Dolphins off Rum, sea eagles, porpoises, loads of laughs, rain, wind and sun.  Can’t wait for the next time.  Christine, Avonbridge, August 2014


A privilege to be on the nicest boat in the area.  Very comfortable, delicious food and an excellent taster for life on the seas. Well done Colin and Pauline for such a fun holiday.  A M, Berkshire, June 2014

Wendy and I are home on the couch looking at Moonshadow photos on your Facebook page and wishing we were back there. Wendy and Jonathan, Port Lincoln, Australia, May 2012


I cannot tell you how much fun we had on the week with you, it was simply splendid in EVERY respect – stunning!   The balance of sailing, eating, ’entertainment’, food, wine, fun, geography, Scottish history, etc was just perfect.    C. Jones, Edinburgh, June 2011


It’s just amazing how long happy memories stay with you and allow you to talk about them fondly and SO often.  Chris and Dot, Edinburgh, June 2011


We are still excited about our wonderful experience in the Hebridean waters.  Once again our thanks for the great time we had together. Ernst and Anna, Switzerland, June 2011


Moonshadow, Colin and Pauline ensure your holiday is just perfect.  A huge thank you to you all.  Pauline your cooking is the best a true 5 star extravaganza. You both know Moonshadow inside-out, she is an amazingly comfortable yacht that handles beautifully.  This is a holiday that will be etched on my mind forever.  I would urge anyone to” go for it” – you will not regret one second.  Jo Macdonald, Staffordshire, May 2011
