Introducing Scotland’s Eighth City: Dunfermline

Last week, it was announced that various towns around the British Isles, and even as far afield as the Falkland Islands, would become cities as part of the Jubilee celebrations. This means that Scotland is no longer the country of seven cities - we've gained an eighth! Dunfermline is a well-deserved choice, given that it… Continue reading Introducing Scotland’s Eighth City: Dunfermline

Staying In Scotland’s Oldest Hotel & Exploring More Of Perthshire

A couple of weeks ago, we headed up to sunny Perthshire to stay in Scotland's oldest inn: the Kenmore Hotel. We stumbled across Kenmore a couple of years ago, perched on the edge of the exceptionally beautiful Loch Tay, and very quickly decided we needed to back and explore the area properly.

Landscapes & History On Lewis & Harris: A Five Day Itinerary

Last month, we finally embarked on a trip to the Outer Hebrides - a very unintentionally overlooked area of Scotland for us. I was particularly excited to see the legendary beaches of Harris, along with iconic historical sites such as the Callanish Stones and the Gearrannan blackhouse village on Lewis. It's also one of the… Continue reading Landscapes & History On Lewis & Harris: A Five Day Itinerary

Photo Friday: The Incredible Beaches Of Lewis & Harris

We just returned a couple of weeks ago from a fantastic trip to Lewis & Harris - our long-overdue first visit to the Outer Hebrides. I'd meant to do this post pretty much straight away, but apparently planning a wedding takes precedent over absolutely everything else in your life, taking up far more of your… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Incredible Beaches Of Lewis & Harris

Glasgow: Scotland’s “Second City” That Shouldn’t Be Missed

When it comes to Scottish cities, it seems like Glasgow often falls to the wayside in favour of Scotland's capital, Edinburgh. To be honest with you (and this will come as no surprise), I do prefer Edinburgh; after all, I live here after years of yearning to move to the city.

Spending A Perfect Weekend On Skye

The first time I visited Skye, we only spent 24 hours on the island, and quickly learned that a day is not enough. Of course, I knew that before we went - I just wanted to see some of the highlights before we headed further north. This time, we spent a full weekend there, which… Continue reading Spending A Perfect Weekend On Skye
