The Brightwater Experience


To go on a Brightwater Holiday is to join a group of like-minded, mature adults with enquiring minds, who are all looking for that bit more from a holiday package.  Our holidays are all well planned and well paced, often with a twist or a theme. We work hard to arrange the innovative and the special, making it easy to visit that garden, antiquity or island you’ve always wanted to see. 

To walk with the owner of a private garden that has opened especially for our party and hear the secrets and stories of their garden; perhaps have tea on the lawn, or see inside their potting shed is often the norm on a Brightwater Holiday. What a thrill it is to be able to buy rare and unusual plants for your own garden from a specialist nursery – we know that all gardeners like nothing better than to buy plants on tour, however we do have to temper that with “No trees please!”

Whilst we rely on our close ties within the world of horticulture and archaeology to ensure we have the most creative and enjoyable itineraries, first and foremost we are a company of passionate travel enthusiasts and experts in many areas. Ask Andrew in our Operations team about a ferry time out of Oban and he’ll recite the entire Caledonian MacBrayne timetable off pat! There is little Jenni does not know about booking flights or how to get the best rail fares. Evelyn and Susan, with over twenty years’ experience in Reservations between them, can process your holiday booking and answer your travel queries quickly and efficiently – you’ll even get a friendly Scottish accent! It is a team game at Brightwater Holidays where everyone wants to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible.

“A wonderfully loyal band of travellers”

We have a wonderfully loyal band of travellers - on average almost half of the participants on every tour is made up of returning clients. This loyalty has been built up over the years due to the fact that we listen to our customers and take heed of your shared holiday experiences in order to fine-tune our itineraries and hotel choices. Each and every holiday questionnaire is read to ensure that we are getting our tour content just right while still offering the best possible value for money.

Thank you for supporting Brightwater Holidays over the last 24 years. We look forward to welcoming you on more holidays in the future.
