Other testimonials include:

“Membership of ASSC is important to us at Airhouses. Not only does it provide valuable help and information on the ASSC website, plus the forum, conferences, and so much more, but there is the added bonus of Embrace Scotland. We received £10,000 worth of bookings through Embrace Scotland over 2015. A lot of these bookings show the source as “internet” but as we use SuperControl, the booking form shows “This booking was sent via the affiliate: Embrace Scotland” so we now have a more accurate picture of where bookings are coming from.” Carol Houghton, Airhouses

“The ASSC has been extremely useful to us in the running of our business.  It has provided us with such helpful information about basic but important things like rates revaluation, private water supplies, and fire safety regulations, as well as giving us the opportunity to network with others running similar businesses.  It has also been supportive to us in so many ways, and provided us with answers to many small administrative queries. The annual AGM meeting is now a highlight in our calendar.” Denys Mathieson, Appin House Lodges, Argyll

“We received many of our bookings via EmbraceScotland this past year and over 90% of these guests booked online. ASSC is a great source of knowledge and support, with a very efficient, friendly interface that links easily to our booking system.” Mandy Bailey, Braes Lodge, Perthshire.

“I would just like to say that over the last twelve months (to February 2016) I have noticed a positive increase in our bookings through the Embrace Scotland website and especially clicks through to our online booking system on our website. I have found that the majority of our guests now want to be able to see availability and book online.” Alison Campbell, Aird House

“Buy one get one free! Subscribe to the EmbraceScotland website and get the support, guidance and advantages of belonging to a professional body free of charge!” Fiona Briggs, Antonine Wall Cottages, Bonnybridge

“If you want to find the broadest range of quality self-catering in Scotland, Embrace has the best directory” Christopher Nairn, Lochend Chalets

“Many thanks for the latest newsletter, it is always packed full of really useful information and a staple read in the tourism office.” Kathryn McLaughlin, Artornish

“Great support to me as owner and advertising on Embrace Scotland. Quality of gurneys seems high – they break fewer glasses than we do at home!” Debra Storr, Varis, Lochalsh

“The ASSC is the best things since sliced bread! It is such a helpful organisation. It’s always been fantastic, but this year (2015) in particular, Eleanor has completely turned our bookings around by helping with our listing. Just fantastic.” Denys Mathieson, Appin House Lodges, Argyll

“I have been extremely pleased with all that ASSC has enabled me to learn and to do.” Sarah Scarlett, Baincraig Lodger, Auchtermuchty

As a new self-catering owner I have found the ASSC to be the best source of information, help and advice to get me going, with fast response from the team when needed. I am also benefiting already from being listed on EmbraceScotland with all my first bookings coming from this site. A super all-round service that I would highly recommend to anybody starting out!” Pinewood Steading

“We had a great year in 2016 with ASSC receiving in total 35 bookings directly through from yourselves onto the SuperControl Online Booking System”, Loch Tay Highland Lodges
