Ulva is a small island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, off the west coast of Mull. It is separated from Mull by a narrow strait and has a population of just seven people! This is easily one of the most remote places I’ve visited but equally one of the most untouched – an absolute haven for wildlife lovers.
Notting Hill is a beautiful district in West London, located in the north of Kensington within the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. It is home to some of the most stunning mews and boutiques in London and is famously featured in the 90’s film Notting Hill. It’s a lovely escape from the hustle and bustle of central London and somewhere that definitely should be on your London ‘to-visit’ list!
For our summer holiday this year, we ventured to the very beautiful Isle of Mull in Scotland. Mull is one of the largest islands of the Inner Hebrides and is situated off the west coast of Scotland. It’s a complete world away from the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh, with rolling hills, lochs galore and hundreds of sheep causing road blocks!
Oban is a small town with a bustling harbour in the west of Scotland. It’s often described as the gateway to the Hebridean islands and is known for its fresh and tasty seafood eateries and the Colosseum-like McCaig’s Tower which overlooks the picturesque Oban bay.
If you are a regular reader of EditsOfJo then it will no surprise to you that Stockbridge is one of my favourite places to visit in Edinburgh. I love how close it is to the centre of Edinburgh yet feels quite removed with the sleepy Dean Village and the Water of Leith. It has some really gorgeous boutiques and some great cafes that are hugely affordable and serve good coffee and food. Not only this, there are a great number of things to do here that it is easy to lose yourself in this part of the city for a day.
Although it’s almost been nine months since the Big Move to Scotland (where that time has gone I just don’t know), I’ve only really properly explored Edinburgh. With the weather being so sunny, I made a trip to Glasgow last weekend to see what this neighbouring city has to offer.
When the weather is warm and the sun is out (it does occasionally happen in Scotland), there’s is nothing better than spending the day at the seaside. Last weekend with the temperature soaring above 20 degrees, I headed to the gorgeous town of North Berwick, which is just under 40 minutes on the train from Edinburgh Waverley Station.
