Well this Scot will be working (small violins) but Wu, Wu, this is how Scots do Christmas.
Yes, the wonderful Wendy Wu is visiting, or her devoted experts and customers are.
With her Christmas in Scotland nine-night tour from £2,615pp from Sunday, December 19-27.
Now I’ve done the oul’ living in Scotland (and am back doing it) while I’ve been a visitor in my own land too.
When I first started this travelling and writing lark one of my first trips was an overnight train journey from London,.
And a stop-off at the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh.
Where the clock always runs three minutes fast to allow people extra time to catch the train at Waverley.
And then a whizz around the Royal Mile and a barrel ride inside the Scotch Whisky Experience.
Before much more whisky was taken at the end of Scottish fare.
Down at the country estate, Cromlix Hotel, Kinbuck, Perthshire, presented on a converted bathchair drinks trolley.
Of course all this I enjoyed way back in the late 80s when Andy Murray had a rattle rather than a tennis racket.
The best recommendation though is that the two-time Wimbledon champion chose Cromlix House.
And he spent some of his millions on, when he bought the demesne in 2013.
All of which is a diversion from the Wendy Wu tour so let’s get back on track here.
And hear from the woman herself…
