Scottish Travel Series
New blogs from outside Scotland
My name is Nicola, I’m a Scottish travel blogger based in Fife, Scotland. Travelling around Scotland, I love to search out beautiful sunrises, hidden gems, amazing food and fascinating tales. I like to find things that are a bit different, unusual and a bit funky. I hope to inspire readers to visit Scotland, to climb the mountains in the Highlands, to swim in the lochs, to spend a night out in Edinburgh, to search for wildlife in the wilderness up north, to discover the gripping history by visiting the many stunning castles and ancient villages, to listen to the spellbinding stories of ghosts and fairies.
Most of the time I travel with my daughter Taylor and my mad Border Collie pup, Crusoe.
