Genealogy & Research

Locate places from your family's past.

Many of our Guests travel to Scotland in the hope of visiting places that feature in their family history.

Many will say they are coming to Scotland to research their roots without understanding how difficult it can be in one short vacation.

To assist, we offer our prospective Guests a fairly elementary Genealogical Research service to enable us to point them in the right direction when they get here. We are NOT expert professional genealogists, but we ARE very good amateurs. We don't charge for our time when carrying out research for prospective Guests in the hope that an hour or two at the computer now will open up your family history for when you get here. 

Our research will no doubt involve computer searches which do  have costs involved in us seeing records on screen in front of us. However, we know how to keep this to an absolute minimum. Please email us for details.

We emphasise that this is a service we are happy to provide for prospective visitors from outside Scotland.

We do not charge for our time while researching, but have to charge small fees involved in inspecting documents online.

Would you like to give this service a try ? Email us a name/date of birth of an ancestor born in Scotland and we'll see what we can find for you in ten minutes work free of all charges. You might be amazed at the results.
