Have yourself a highland fling with a trip north to Aviemore

Loch Morlich, near Aviemore
Loch Morlich, near Aviemore

SOMETIMES we all need a short break away from it all and instead of hot sunny beaches or glitzy European cities, all we need to recharge our batteries is a few days of fresh air and a change of scene.

The north of Scotland, Speyside in particular, has always been a winner when the stress of everyday life starts to get to me and I need some proper r&r!

This neck of the woods is arguably one of the most picturesque parts of Scotland. Misty glens, purple roaming heather, snow-capped mountains and views so perfect they look like they should be on a shortbread box. It’s the ideal place to just slow right down and take your time to appreciate the natural beauty that’s on our doorsteps…or at least a drive away.
