It’s not particularly a secret, but I wanted to make it as simple as possible for you to plan your trip, too. Loch Lomond is a fresh water loch and is the greatest inland stretch of water in Britain based on its surface area.

A Weekend Spent Wandering Around the Yorkshire Dales

Last month I travelled down to the Yorkshire Dales for a long weekend in celebration of yet another family birthday milestone.

Absolute peaceful bliss.  (more…)
