THE oasis in Scotland I head to every year is the Isle of Arran, a mercurial escape that more than deserves the “Scotland in Miniature” acclaim.
The Isle of Arran is a retreat you can’t beat: Leave your cares (and kids!) behind with an idyllic island getaway
I LOVE children but, for a father-of-two, I do seem to spend a lot of time avoiding them.
Do you find that you are spending less time with the most important people in your life? Are you too busy for any ‘me time’? If ‘yes’, then you and your other half are probably in great need of a luxury short break.
1. Culzean Castle, Maybole History, spectacle, scenery. Fun inside and out. What’s not to love about Culzean Castle? You could easily spend a whole day in the massive country park. There’s three miles of shoreline with lovely beaches and intriguing caves, the formal gardens of Fountain Court and the Walled Garden while kids will love the Adventure Cove play park. The Armoury houses one of the world’s best collections of swords and pistols. There’s fascination as well with the presidential connections. In 1945 the top floor was converted into a flat for General Eisenhower as thanks for America’s support during the Second World War. He visited four times after he became president and you can stay in those very rooms, now part of a country house hotel.
