Today, Balkissock Lodge B&B was awarded a Certification Mark from the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere “in recognition of high quality standards in delivering environmental and sustainable development benefits to the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere


The award ceremony was held at Culzean Castle and speakers included Dr Beth Taylor (Chair, UK National Commission for UNESCO), John Thomson and Ed Forrest both of the GSA Biosphere and the awards were presented by Scottish Government Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Tourism and External Affairs, Fiona Hyslop who fondly remembers childhood holidays in Ballantrae and splashing about in the river Stinchar.


Two other micro businesses were also awarded a certification mark today: Adventure Centre for Education (ACE) based in Girvan and Salad Brew based in Borgue in Dumfries and Galloway.


After speaking to Dr Taylor, I understand that this accolade makes Balkissock Lodge not only the only B&B with a biosphere certification mark in Scotland but possibly in the whole world!

I arrived home from work surprised to see 63 emails in my inbox yesterday … I had no idea until then that I’d been “Freshly Pressed” … which is not as painful as it sounds!!  A hundred more have arrived today.  I’m completely astounded!!!

I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has taken time to look, like or comment and I shall reply to each and every one as soon as possible.  I’m new to WordPress and not yet learned to navigate my way around but hope to catch up on your own blogs and stories in due course.  Please don’t think me rude if it takes a day or two to get through the backlog.

A few of you have even subscribed to the blog [gosh…thank you so much!] and commented that you can’t wait for the next post …no pressure there then!! [oh, hold on … that’s this one!! *mops brow* Phew!!]

Thank you so much, Cordelia 🙂
