Final Coord.

Sep 2023 The meeting with my 2023 guests has gone well and we are on course for a belting trip – I honestly can’t wait – but have to write a quick summary for clients’ details and final requests needs to go my suppliers and make that the final coordination is all drawn together. On […]

Back in the Headmaster’s Office.

Aug 2023.  The month the cringy ‘’purple office’’ posts start appearing on social media… In the meantime at GTS HQ we have moved into a cracking new office in an old school. To everyone’s amusement my office is the old headmaster’s office, as a boy I used to know the offices of my various headmasters […]

Some time out…

Jun/Jul 2023. These are the quietest months for me as many people are away and I take the opportunity to spend some time on the water either with guests and family in the rivers of Scotland or dressed from head to toe in neoprene ridding the waves of Tyree and Berwickshire on my trustee sea […]

I hate computers!

May 2023.  Nightmare! My Charles Brownlow Ltd emails, due to a historic mess, have been on the blink and I’ve not received anything.

As ever with these two the conversation quickly slipped into a language of fonts and algorithms and I rapidly lose the thread of the conversation. My mind wanders […]

The Game is Afoot.

Jan 2023.  We are now 10 months out from the 2023 Game Train Scotland adventure, we have a team and a train, and most importantly an itinerary, and it is now that the first of many short blasts of frenetic correspondence going between myself, my guests and the suppliers.  Every trip has its own character.

Confirmation for 2023!

Oct 2022 Boom! An enquiry leads to a booking for 2023 Game Train Scotland! Always an humbling moment to think that someone has is spending a large sum of money to put their trust in me to deliver a holiday for them and their friends in a year’s time… But the team is swept up […]
