Tomintoul Museum & VIC: It’s an Asset

Working in the Tomintoul Museum and VIC has been a great experience so far. I have met a variety of different people who have travelled from counties all over the world. Many come with interesting stories to tell; some who had previously worked and lived in the village up to 70 years ago, and others who have sat for hours telling me about their travels across Scotland and other parts of the world, sharing with me their stories and experiences. One person who particularly stood out for me was a man who was carrying out research for a university degree; he had cycled all the way up from London in 38 days with no more than a bike, tent and some basic supplies. Stopping in cities, towns and many small villages similar to Tomintoul, he would chat to locals in the hope that they would give him an insight into life in the area. He had many stories to tell, and I admired his bravery of travelling to an unknown location with rarely even a map to follow never mind any other form of communication!

Another part of the job I really enjoy is feeling more involved within the community. Even though I have lived here for the majority of my life, since working at the VIC I am constantly learning and expanding my knowledge of the area, which I feel is very valuable. It is a very satisfying feeling when someone comes in lost, or needs somewhere to stay and you are able to help them!

I feel the Museum and Information service the VIC provides is a very important asset to Tomintoul and Glenlivet. It provides a much needed base for people to become aware of the amenities and activities the area can offer, and encourages people to stay and use these to their full potential. Nearly every person that comes through the doors has something positive to say about the area, and many remark on the interesting and informative information the museum contains.

    I have been reviewing online more than 2 hours
    today for 1/2 Price Pro Calgary Painting & Tomintoul Museum & VIC: It’s an Asset, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all
    web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

    It’s very easy to find out any matter on web as compared to
    books, as I found this post at this web site.

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering
    issues with your website. It appears as if some of the written text on your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve
    had this happen before. Kudos

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and
    appearance. I must say you’ve done a superb job with this.
    Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any
    tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
