Rustic Hollow Cabin
Nestled near Banff, Rustic Hollow Cabin stands out as one of my best decisions.
A hidden gem, it offers tranquility, stunning views and beautiful landscaping, making it ideal for a romantic getaway or a solo retreat. The wood-burning stove, outdoor bath, and fireplace enhance the experience.
With attention to detail and ample spots to explore nearby, this cabin is perfect for those seeking an escape from city life. I highly recommend adding it to your staycation list.
Portly Bird in Aberdeen is truly phenomenal.
The doughnuts crafted by this establishment have consistently impressed. I am a big admirer of the diverse flavours and intricate designs showcased in their creations.
With a mission to prioritise sustainability, every doughnut is made with ingredients sourced responsibly, showcasing a journey from farm to doughnut. The passion and love infused into these weekly delights make them a must-try experience for everyone.
Sitting proudly on a tidal islet in Loch Laich, an inlet of Loch Linnhe, northeast of Port Appin, is Castle Stalker. It is a captivating fortress with origins traced back to a residential tower built in 1320.
This fantastic castle is a must-visit for those exploring Oban and its surroundings. The historical charm and picturesque setting create an unforgettable experience for visitors.
