The United Kingdom has a whole heap of gorgeous towns, sleepy little villages and vibrant cities to explore! Yeah, I know I’m biased (being a Brit myself) but there’s so much to see across our beautiful islands. From sunny spots in the south of England to ancient villages that have stood for over a thousand … Continue Reading

The following morning, I’d never been more grateful to have the heated seat the lady at Avis gave use with our 4×4! The temperatures had plummeted overnight and, hopping back into the car, I can’t tell you how nice it was to not be sitting in freezing leather seats as we made our way up towards … Continue Reading

Back when we were students in St Andrews, there were plans to knock down the building at the waterfront in Dundee and replace them with a V&A Dundee. I don’t pay much attention to things like this but Lloyd does and as soon as we decided to head up to Scotland, this was one place … Continue Reading

Once upon a time, we used to live in Scotland (back when we were students up in St Andrews and after that working in Edinburgh) and one thing I really wished we’d done more of back then was to explore more of Scotland. It’s funny but even living in Edinburgh (which is one of the … Continue Reading

If it’s your first time in Great Britain, your gazillionth or you live here, you’ll have soon realised that there’s so much more to our great island than just London. Now, that’s not saying London is bad (it’s probably one of my favourite cities in the world) but we are so lucky to have such … Continue Reading

After living in Edinburgh for 4 years, I can safely say (without a shadow of a doubt) that the city is amazing! It’s one of those places that has so much going on, so many places to see, a huge swash of history to explore and some incredible things to do in Edinburgh. It really … Continue Reading

After spending a good six years studying in Fife, I’ve come to call this area of Scotland my second home. I mean, who wouldn’t? Unlike the vast mountain ranges of the Scottish Highlands, Fife is much more easterly meaning a little less rain and a lot more of those gorgeous rolling hills. Now, over my … Continue Reading

Okay, just putting it out there, us Brits have some great places to visit. Including some of the most beautiful towns to visit in the UK. What’s best about the UK is that we have a whole heap of diverse little towns and pretty villages spread across the kingdom. I mean, where else can you … Continue Reading

Yup, there are so many beautiful places to visit in the UK. From the itty-bitty hamlets that are nestled within the Cotswolds to historic cities such as Edinburgh, we have an epic amount of places and probably some unusual traditions and that you should definitely experience. There really is so much more to the UK … Continue Reading

There’s so much to see in Scotland and I’ve no hesitation in saying that everyone should definitely visit at least once. Heck, why put a limit on it, go fifty times, I swear you’ll find something different each time. Now, without sounding too wishy-washy, there’s a whole heap of reasons to visit Scotland that I can … Continue Reading

There’s no doubt by now that you’ve seen us banging on about how beautiful the Scottish Highlands are and how much we loved our visit. From the stunning beauty of the Cairngorms, foraging for seaweed for lunch, the Wester Ross Trail and driving part of the North Coast 500 – Scotland really spoilt us during … Continue Reading

As you’ve probably guessed, I’ve quite a soft spot for a festive Christmas – it doesn’t matter if it’s a tropical Christmas in Bali, a snowy New York Christmas or a gorgeous Christmas in the UK, as long as there is lashings of mulled wine, binge-worthy TV and lots of family time I’m a happy … Continue Reading

The very next morning in Loch Shiel, after chatting and laughing the night away with the locals at the pub, there was nothing for it but a huge Scottish breakfast and a lazy slow and lazy morning exploring the area. (I did say, we would be going on “Slow Adventures” 😉 ). We got a … Continue Reading

After our long drive through one of the most scenic routes in the Scottish Highlands, we decided to switch things up a notch and “go slow” (though in all honesty, we’d decided this well in advance of even arriving in Scotland). The day started with a short drive over the bridge to the Isle of … Continue Reading
