Isle of Arran

If I could frame any view in Scotland and put it on the mantelpiece, it would be the sight of Arran coming off the M77 past Kilmarnock. When it’s a clear, beautiful sunset it’s the bonniest sight. I’m a west coaster through and through. The west coast sunsets fill you with an infectious, warm glow.

Orkney is one of my favourite places to visit, especially at festival time. It’s full of warmth, music and dancing. I love that feeling of being on the edge of the world. That feeling when you’re in someone’s house by the sea and the waves splash at the window. Orkney wins for me.

Applecross and Wester Ross

It’s like being in the middle of a Lord of the Rings movie when you visit Applecross and Wester Ross – it’s such a dramatic place. I always thought the scenery in Scotland was amazing but Wester Ross in particular just blew my mind and Applecross is a lovely place to stop.
