What to do in Orkney, A weekend away on this tranquil Scottish Island

Orkney may be a small island hidden away off the tip of mainland Scotland but as we found out it has a hell of a lot more to offer than you may think! From whisky at the famous Highland Park Distillery to one of the world's best preserved 5000 year old settlements, we found ourselves struggling to fully appreciate this incredible island on our short trip.

Double Date at Go-Ape! Aberfoyle, Scotland

With that beast of a winter coming to an end and the days getting a little longer Jess and I thought it was about time to surface from hibernation. Where better to shake of our winter laziness and start this years adventuring than at Go-Ape, Aberfoyle. We hailed a couple of friends to unleash our inner apes and go wild in the Spring sunshine (well, and the spring rain but we didn't let that stop us). If you're looking for quirky date ideas, then this is the place for you.

Deals of the Month - March (UK to LAX in Business for £1216 + More)

It’s been a while since I have posted a "deals of the week" but spurred on by the awesome business class flights British Airways are currently offering to the West coast of America I thoughtful it be a fitting time to bring it back but this time as "deals of the month" because I am too lazy to post once a week.

Best AirBnB in the world? - Serrana & Sergas Villa in St Lucia

St Lucia is building up to be 2018's most trendy destination, with lush jungle, famous piton mountains and incredible beaches its easy to see why its been featured heavily in the latest travel magazines. One draw back of St Lucia is the hotel prices, they can be extortionate but a local named Janus has built himself two incredible villas which you can rent for a fraction of what the local 5* hotels are charging!

British Airways Lounge at Glasgow Airport ft. Glenlivet Whisky Snug 2018

With my British Airways Silver Membership running out and my snowboard itching to get out of the cupboard its been locked in I couldn't think of a better time to hop on a BA flight to Geneva and hit the slopes. Checking out some of the airport lounges along the way, of course.  My fiancé and I have popped in to the British Airways Club Lounge in Glasgow Airport a number of times now but I always seem to be flying on a very early flight. Even as a Scottish person I normally deem this too early to drink whisky. But not today, since its a ski trip and the hip flask normally gets cracked out on the first lifts anyway I decided it was a perfect time to sample some whisky in the Glasgow exclusive Glenlivet Whisky Snug tucked away in the corner of the lounge.
