Downton Abbey’s Duneagle Castle, setting for the season three finale of this wildly popular show, took place in Scotland at the real life Inveraray Castle, a place where I recently payed a visit. Inveraray Castle, the seat of the Duke of Argyll, head of the Campbell Clan, is located in an idyllic spot — on the north-west border of Loch Fyne amid some of the Highlands’ most impressive scenery.

    Honeymoon in Tahiti

    I have never worked with a more professional, knowledgeable, responsive and friendly travel agent before. We knew we wanted to go to the South Pacific for our honeymoon and I did not want to try and create such a customized trip on my own, Melody went above and beyond her call of duty as a travel agent!

    Not only did she obtain us a great price, she got free honeymoon perks for us, made a bound guide of the area for us, and sent my husband a birthday card and me a sympathy card after the death of my grandma, but she got us an immediate refund when we had a small issue at a restaurant in Bora Bora and after my husband got really sick escalated the situation right away…I recommend her to all and would use her again in a heartbeat!
