Welcome to the spring issue of
Country Lifestyle Scotland


Being a right nosy begger has its advantages as a journalist. Working on this issue has allowed me to spend a day with one of Scotland's master bakers, getting top tips on how to bake Scottish classics at his newly opened bakery school. I had the chance to visit Highland artist, Claire Innes, in Fort William, to find out what inspires her colourful creations and then I spent a weekend in the Cowal Peninsula stretching the old legs on a quick tour of the area.

While I was there it brought back memories of visiting the area as a stroppy teenager and being unimpressed by the lack of activity, even though I filled those five days with adventure activities that I will never forget. It was a whole new set of memories that were laid down this time, dragging my own stroppy teenagers with me. The area is wild and rugged and a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, but there is also a whole host of far more leisurely pursuits to enjoy. Terrific restaurants, top hotels, high end accommodation and spas are there to discover, and it is all just a little more than an hour away from Glasgow. I've been missing a trick with this area, and it's a place I'll be going back to - though I might wait until it's a bit warmer... brrrr.
