The Outer Hebrides/Western Isles have for a great many years been world renowned for their splendid hospitality. The Hebridean people are a friendly, warm hearted and gently spoken race who show a large amount of patience when dealing with problematic situations. This characteristic has led to the influx of a number U.K. service/call centers in the Outer Hebrides/Western Isles. If you have ever had the pleasure of a holiday in the Outer Hebrides/Western Isles you will totally agree when I make the statement that Hebridean Hospitality is unbeaten. It is therefore rather surprising to hear that almost all accommodation owners are becoming angry by the lack of action by the official Scottish tourism industry to increase the number of visitors booking accommodation. I have witnessed an alarming number of discussions amongst groups of owners of Bed and Breakfast on Harris accommodation about VisitScotland.com and it’s massive number of sites especially VisitHebrides.com.
The B & B on Harris provider’s main worry is the alarming lack of reservations coming from the VisitScotland.com travel portals including VisitHebrides.com. Some have decided to Visit Scotland while several have already parted company. Virtually all accommodation owners on Harris, like those in other parts of Scotland, have their very own sites displaying their own accommodation but nobody else’s. If you search Google for B & B on Harris or Outer Hebrides/Western Isles accommodation you will soon see the multitude of sites fighting for the top listing on the first page of returns. The monstrous amount of expense, energy and time is alarming.
EnjoyHebrides.com is a brand new site dedicated to Outer Hebrides/Western Isles accommodation. Enjoy Hebrides aim to include all accommodation in the Outer Hebrides/Western Isles including all of the B & B on Harris. The Enjoy Hebrides site (www.enjoyhebrides.com) is hoped to be a quick and easy to use site so that visitors can book their accommodation with the minimum of fuss. Though this is a bold aim to publicize Enjoy Hebrides arevery confident that they will succeed.
