Visit Scotland by train this summer

Are you thinking of taking a break this summer and aren’t quite sure where to go? Living in the UK we sometimes forget the beauty it offers and are often quick to head into the sun or abroad without thinking about exploring a little closer to home.

Edinburgh Castle Wedding Open Day

If you are looking for the ultimate romantic location for your wedding, why not come along to Edinburgh Castle’s Wedding Open Day on Sunday 17th March 2013?

Published in Scottish Tourism News

We attended the National Museum of Flight for the February Fun in the Air event that ran between the 9th and 17th of February. It looked like a really great day out while the children were on their February break. We were very lucky with the day that we chose because we woke up on Friday morning to glorious sunshine. The weather we had previous to this was very temperamental with a heavy snowfall on Wednesday. Anyway, we packed the car full, got the kids ready and headed for the museum which is situated at the old East Fortune RAF Airfield.

Edinburgh Castle

If you’re going to visit Scotland, Edinburgh Castle is one of those places you simply have to visit.  It’s part of the touring Scotland experience.  I first visited the Castle on my first visit to Scotland in 2001 – eleven years ago at the time of this writing.  Since then, I have immigrated to Scotland and hosted many guests from America, and therefore, have also visited Edinburgh Castle with my guests many times.

Camera Obscura

Of all the things I didn’t know I was missing in life, Camera Obscura and World of Illusions in Edinburgh is currently Number One. I’d been told I should visit it a few years ago but never got around to it.  I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal.
