What could be better than a little autumn road trip around my favourite country in the world, Scotland?
Our drive north from Glasgow, through The Cairngorms National Park, and on to Inverness, the so-called capital of The Highlands, was an easy and beautiful one. The leaves were a multitude of yellows, burnt oranges and deep reds and were wonderfully framed by the bright blue sky that we rarely glimpse living in Scotland.
When I’m not travelling I love doing new things and having fun with friends during my time at home so when I heard about the chance to host my very own cocktail party in my house I got very excited. I might even have jumped up and down and squealed a little bit. Who wouldn’t love a night in with friends and some wonderful cocktails without having to traipse around town in the rain (yes, it’s always raining in Glasgow).
I was lucky enough to spend a long weekend at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival and got the chance to go to some incredible shows during my time there. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world and has been running since 1947. It’s one of 12 major festivals that occur in the city every single year. It’s safe to say Edinburgh likes a party!
If you follow my blog on a regular basis then you’ll know that I’m a country girl at heart. I live in a little village and absolutely love being surrounded by natural beauty. I also have a penchant for being near water and both of these loves of mine were on my doorstep during a recent stay on the banks of Loch Lomond.
This was my stunning view from the patio of my beautiful luxury Loch Lomond Waterfront Lodge. The green trees, blue skies and the waters of the loch in the distance were absolutely perfect, and gazing at them from my private hot tub wasn’t bad either! Read more
I’ve just returned from a dreamy, relaxing weekend at Archerfield Lodges near the picture perfect seaside town of North Berwick in the north east of Scotland.
Not a bad place to spend a weekend…
Having never taken the time to explore North Berwick properly I was delighted that the sun was shining and we were blessed with a lovely Scottish summer weekend. It’s the perfect little town to stroll along the beachfront, or get down onto the beach and feel the sand between your toes. Read more
Walking along the industrial street which was peppered with street art we weren’t quite sure what we were letting ourselves in for. It was an unusual venue for dinner to say the least. But then this wasn’t your typical candle-lit restaurant meal we were going to.
Spotting the sign which confirmed we were indeed in the right place was slightly reassuring. As we followed the direction of the sign’s arrow we came to an unmarked door. The only thing to give away that this was the right place was the sounds of funky soul music flitting through the walls. Read more
