10 Spooky Places To Visit In Scotland

Scotland is certainly no stranger to spooky stories about paranormal activity and tragic legends leading to the living dead haunting castle rooms and even the great outdoors where the cobwebs should have been long blown away. So many hotels and pubs brand themselves the "most haunted pub in Scotland" with ghost stories to match, to… Continue reading 10 Spooky Places To Visit In Scotland

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. But it's not to… Continue reading Glasgow: Scotland’s “Second City” That Shouldn’t Be Missed

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

Climbing Stac Pollaidh, One Of Scotland’s Best Hikes

A couple of weeks ago, I climbed a mountain! It's ridiculous that I hadn't done this in so long, given the amount of mountains there are in Scotland and how easy it is to climb some of them. Lockdown has stripped me of all my fitness, so despite deciding I'd start tackling some more munros,… Continue reading Climbing Stac Pollaidh, One Of Scotland’s Best Hikes

Exploring Coco Chanel’s Abandoned Mansion In Scotland

If there's one thing I LOVE doing, it's finding abandoned buildings you can explore - and even better if they still have things inside to showcase the history. And even better again if they HAVE a lot of history. Scotland, luckily, has loads to choose from. Between some 3,000 castles and numerous abandoned stately homes,… Continue reading Exploring Coco Chanel’s Abandoned Mansion In Scotland

Getting Loch-y: A Sunny Day Out In The Trossachs

Exciting news, everyone - our lockdown is ending TOMORROW! It's been a rough, rough, rough winter, having not been allowed to even leave Edinburgh since the beginning of November, almost a full six months ago. Full lockdown hit straight after Christmas, where we have been twiddling our thumbs and going increasingly insane ever since. And… Continue reading Getting Loch-y: A Sunny Day Out In The Trossachs

Edinburgh’s 10 Best Walks & Where To Find Them

We might still be stuck in our local areas for the next few weeks, but the one thing I am thankful for is that Edinburgh is full to the brim with great walks commanding beautiful views. Lockdown has meant getting out and exploring a bit closer to home, which isn't always a bad thing -… Continue reading Edinburgh’s 10 Best Walks & Where To Find Them
