Save Place
Northern Europe
Rarely have I felt as content as I did earlier this year, at a wonderful little retreat in Scotland called The Woodman’s Hut. Located inside popular Cairngorms National Park, it’s the choice accommodation at Lazy Duck Hostel, a farm and lodging...
Save Place
Isle of Skye, Duntulm, Portree IV51 9UF, UK
At the very northern tip of the Isle of Skye, which is an island off of the upper north western shore of Scotland, are the ruins of Duntulm Castle. To get there, you have to drive for several hours on narrow dirt roads, but the sense of remoteness...
Save Place
Fort William, UK
What was expected to be the low point of a two day getaway at the foot of Ben Nevis turned out to be one of the more beautiful experiences of my life so far. The four hour train ride between Glasgow and Fort William takes you between snow-capped...
Save Place
Gruyères, Switzerland
Could there be a more glorious setting for a cheese's origin? These pastures surrounding a hilltop village (Gruyères) crowned with a castle (the Château de Gruyères), happy Swiss cows grazing with views of the Alps all around,...
Save Place
Zinal, 3961 Ayer, Switzerland
For pure exhilaration, try your hand at ice climbing. Expert guides from a variety of tour companies, such as Outdoor Interlaken and SkiAscent, take groups up and down frozen waterfalls, glaciers, and ice-covered rock slabs in various locations in...
Save Place
Lake Geneva
With well over a thousand lakes, Switzerland is blessed with its fair share of stunning bodies of water. The most extensive, however, is Lake Geneva (also known as Lac Léman), where you can bask in seductive views and amazing sunsets....
Save Place
For blissful trails sounded only by the dongs of cow bells and surrounded by imposing iconic mountains, head to Villars-sur-Ollon in the Vaud Alps. This typical Swiss town, a bustling ski resort during the winter, offers several stunning summer...
Save Place
Loch Dunmore Faskally Wood, Pitlochry PH16 5LB, UK
Pitlochry in Highlands Perthshire could perhaps be an unlikely candidate for the home of an award-winning sound and light show - but, it is, and to be quite honest I can think of similar places that could work just as well - but it's the...
Save Place
1 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1AD, UK
In my humble opinion, the service at the Hotel Missoni is a little bit over the top, but that's just my opinion, and I know that some people really enjoy that sort of theatre. That said, this is without a doubt one of the best places in the whole...

Dents du Midi, 1873 Val-d'Illiez, Switzerland
As seen from Vevey on a clear sunny day
Save Place
Maladaire, 1610 Oron-la-Ville, Switzerland
One of the greatest things about the Alps is the camping - some of the best sites are located right on the shores of the most spectacular lakes in the world. Being an regular of the Montruex Jazz Festival allows me the luxury of camping on the...
Save Place
Gwynedd LL48 6LF, UK
The view of Pen yr Ole Wen across Ffynnon Lloer. In early dawn soft snow fell on the chest of the hill and little by little melted into the lloer.
Save Place
Les Diablerets, 1865 Ormont-Dessus, Switzerland
At 450m long and graded D+ (difficult) this is probably quite a challenging Via Ferrata - there are overhanging sections, it's physically demanding, some very exposed sections, and it's hot - even in the shade! If that's not for you, there is a...
Save Place
Monifieth, Dundee, UK
Monifieth is a pretty sleepy, almost-coastal little town on the River Tay, a few miles outside of Dundee. There isn't a massive amount going on, but it's a nice place to get a bit of peace and quiet. The beach itself isn't one I would recommend...
Save Place
Grasmere, Ambleside LA22, UK
This is one of the best scrambling days I've ever done - it quite simply did not last long enough! Starting at Grasmere, and taking the path towards Stickle Tarn - a really dramatic mountain lake, popular with paragliders - very fun to watch. This...
Save Place
Borrowdale, Keswick CA12 5XE, UK
A hidden bothy, wild swimming, great walking and scrambling, and 360-degree views of the Lake District - the Langstrath Valley really is an outdoor persons dream. The trail down the Valley starts at Chapel House Farm campsite, and goes all the way...
Save Place
Scotland is world-famous for its mountain biking and Craigvinean is a perfect place to get a taste of what some of the Highlands have to offer, without too much of a drive from Glasgow or Edinburgh. The range of trails at Craigvinean is brilliant...
Save Place
Bowness Pier, The Promenade, Bowness-on-Windermere, Windermere LA23 3HQ, UK
Just a mile or so away from the hustle and bustle of Bowness-on-Windermere, there is a quaint, little place called Wynlass Beck - it's quite simply the sort of place you imagine fairies and all sorts of magical creatures live. Follow the little...

Highland Safaris, Aberfeldy PH15 2JQ, UK
After a gruelling 25-mile bike ride with the Highland Perthshire Cycling Girls on Tour, we stopped at Highland Safaris in Aberfeldy for some much needed refreshments - I can confirm that the lemon drizzle cake be worth peddling 25-miles for!...

Aviemore PH22 1RB, UK
On a good day Scotland really does rival the Alps - this was a perfect walk in - blue skies, light winds, fluffy snow, and not another sinner in sight. Perfect winter walking conditions.

1017 Robson St, Vancouver, BC V6E 1A9, Canada
Quaint but extensively stocked mecca for chocolate lovers! I was extremely impressed by their selection of sweet covered apples - the toffee ones sent my heart racing for all the right reasons - oh how I wished I was one of those people who bring...

791 W Georgia St, Vancouver, BC V6C 2T4, Canada
I love a bit of French toast as much as the next person, but this was off the scale! Brioche soaked in Creme Anglaise - then topped with apricot compote and maple syrup. Obviously, this sort of dish doesn't make up my regular diet, but it was...
