Here are 10 of my favourite photos to inspire you to visit the north of Scotland…

I visited the two furthest north points in mainland UK – both […]

Off to the South of France!

As this post goes live I’ll likely be throwing the last few things into my suitcase before heading to the airport. I’m off to the south of France for five glorious days!

Thomas and I were originally supposed to be travelling together with his parents. His mum just celebrated a big birthday (I won’t say which!) and this was our gift […]

Visiting the Most Northern Point in Mainland UK

By |August 10th, 2017|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|0 Comments

One of the things I knew I wanted to do on my trip to the far north of Scotland was visit the most northern point in mainland UK.
I must admit, though, that I believed this to be at John O’Groats. I’d always heard the things about people travelling from Land’s End to John O’Groats, the two most extreme parts of […]

Why Planning is Half the Fun

By |August 7th, 2017|Travel Tales|0 Comments

I don’t know about you but I love, love, love planning a trip. For me, there are few things better than sitting down with a fresh notebook, my laptop and getting into planning mode.

I love planning out all those little details that other people probably hate. Like transfers from the airport to the accommodation. Or checking if we’re staying within […]

Holiday Reading

By |August 3rd, 2017|Travel Tales|1 Comment

What’s your favourite thing to do on a relaxing holiday? I know one of mine is lying by the pool or beach reading a really good book. I also love reading on the plane or any other form of transport, and sometimes before bed (if I haven’t had one too many cocktails by then!). Reading has always been one of […]

July Round-Up

By |July 31st, 2017|Life|0 Comments

What’s been happening in July?
July has been SUCH a good month!

I started off the month at Archerfield House, enjoying a blissful weekend away with my family and, of course, my pooch Ben. It was a perfect, relaxing weekend that involved good food, even better company and a superb setting.

After that I was home for less than 24 hours unpacking and […]

The Balance Between Travel and Home

By |July 27th, 2017|Life|0 Comments

My boyfriend Thomas and I bought our first house together last year.

I absolutely love our home. It’s spacious and it’s in a good area. We’ve got it decorated just how we want, we’re close to Glasgow and to our families and friends. It’s pretty much ideal for us at this stage in our lives. We love having our own space, […]

Thinking About India

By |July 24th, 2017|Destinations, India|0 Comments

‘India,’ Wesley murmered, ‘it gets under your skin. Everywhere else seems dull by comparison.’
I recently read a book (The Tea Planter’s Daughter by Janet Macleod Trotter) that had the above quote in it. I couldn’t help but smile and found myself nodding along, agreeing. India definitely does get under your skin.

India has been on my mind a lot lately. As […]

My South of France Packing List (aka Lust List!)

By |July 20th, 2017|Packing Lists & What to Wear In...|0 Comments

It’s less than 4 weeks until I head to the gorgeous South of France and I cannot wait! Naturally, I’ve already started to think about what I’ll pack and wear and what I need to buy. Okay, I probably don’t *need* to buy anything, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to! After all, everyone in the south of France […]

Why Scotland is One of My Favourite Places to Travel

By |July 17th, 2017|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|1 Comment

I’ve had some great trips in Scotland recently and it has undoubtedly solidified my love for my home country. I was born here 27 years ago and have always lived here, but I love travelling here too.

I travelled right up to the north of the country two weeks ago and fell head over heels again. I was stunned by how […]
