Highlands & Islands (including Moray) MSP, David Stewart tabled a motion in the Scottish Parliament recognising the success of Glenlivet couple, Charlie and Susan Ironside on their new ‘One Life Livet Tour’ that comprises a specialised off-road touring company situated in the Cairngorm mountain foothills, directly above The Glenlivet.
