A Festive Edinburgh Weekend

I am a total lover of winter city breaks, especially just before Christmas. I love visiting places when they’re cold, crisp and decorated to the hilt for the festive period. Edinburgh just happens to be one of my absolute favourite cities to visit at Christmas time so last weekend Thomas and I, along with two of our friends headed for […]

Last weekend I enjoyed another trip back to the gorgeous seaside city of St Andrews, on the east coast of Scotland. It’s less than two hours drive from home, so it’s the perfect spot for a quick weekend getaway, whilst also feeling a million miles from home.

I travelled with my brother Iain, his girlfriend Michelle and my parents. My boyfriend […]

Last month Thomas and I indulged in a little mini-break in Glasgow to celebrate our three year anniversary and it was so much fun!

When you think of great locations for stargazing around the world Scotland probably isn’t somewhere that immediately springs to mind. I’ve lived in Scotland all my life and I’m a little ashamed to admit I didn’t realise there are some parts of the country that have absolutely perfect conditions for admiring the stars in the night sky.

By |March 21st, 2016|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|1 Comment

There are lots of countries that are ‘easier’ for solo travellers to explore. By […]
