I make no secret of the fact that, as much as I love travelling abroad, I also love travelling in my beloved Scotland. Road trips are pretty much the perfect way to do that, and so a couple of weeks ago Thomas and I jumped in the car ready for a much-needed Scottish getaway.

The town itself is small and incredibly charming, and lies high above the glittering waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea below. Although the real killer views are the ones out over […]
