20 Things I Love About Glasgow

Posted on by Emma Gray in Scotland, Travel Tales | 2 Comments

I might be a little biased since it’s the nearest city to my countryside village home here in Scotland but I believe Glasgow is a truly underrated city. It’s all too often left forgotten and in the shadow of it’s prettier neighbour, Edinburgh, and I think people who don’t visit Glasgow are truly missing out.

A Guide to Scottish Slang

Posted on by Emma Gray in Scotland, Travel Tales | 4 Comments

One of the things I love about being Scottish (and there are many) is that us Scots have our own little Scottish words, phrases, slang and accents. I know from travelling a lot that we can sometimes be hard to understand for people who aren’t familiar with our accents and the fact that we talk at a rate of a million miles per hour, especially after a few drinks! To make things even more confusing for visitors different towns, sometimes only 30 miles apart, have completely different accents and slang words. SCOTTISH SLANG We have some pretty great Scottish slang words and if I tried to document them all for you I’d be here forever. So, I wanted to share a few of my favourites that you might want to know if you’re planning to visit my beautiful country, or you might just want to have a good giggle at. Try them out and you’ll impress the locals! Read more

Why You Should Visit Scotland in Autumn

Posted on by Emma Gray in Scotland, Travel Tales | 2 Comments

Autumn is such a perfect season. I love the yellow, orange and red leaves as they transform from green through the colour spectrum. I love the piles of leaves sweeping around as they’re caught by the wind. I love the fact it gets a little chilly outside so I can start wearing the cute ankle boots and cosy jumpers I’ve been keeping in the back of my wardrobe since March.

I also think that autumn is the perfect time to visit my beautiful home country of Scotland, here’s why…

The colours are amazing

The autumn colours are spectacular in Scotland and just add to the all round gorgeousness of the country. I’m a firm believer that Scotland is one of the most beautiful countries in the world!

Scotland is filled with so many evergreen trees, which means you get to enjoy the contrast of the fiery autumn leaves changing colour against the deep greens of the pine trees. It’s a stunning sight.

Venice is a place that I absolutely adore, no matter how filled with tourists it is, and I’ve written here before about my unwavering love for the city. So, when my partner, Thomas, and I booked a cruise that departed from Venice we knew we needed to fly out a few days early and spend some time in this magical place. VENICE ITALY Read more
