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 […]

I have something exciting to share!

I’m pretty sure I discovered one of Scotland’s best beaches last week!

During my trip up north with ScotRail I stumbled upon one of the best beaches I’ve ever seen. Certainly the best beach in Scotland I’ve ever come across. There was glorious white sand, tumbling sand dunes, a gorgeous bay, stunning turquoise waters and some of […]

There’s been something of a heatwave in Scotland for the last week or so. If you’re not from Scotland, let’s just say that means it’s been about 20 degrees Celsius or more. For us, that counts as a heatwave.

With this heatwave I’ve noticed some pretty distinct things that happen here in Scotland. We’re a pretty predictable breed, so this stuff […]

It’s a gorgeous, sprawling estate that has several golf courses, an amazing spa and some seriously luxe lodges.

My family have a membership there […]
