  • A Walk Into The Hermitage

    16 October 2021 rebecca

    I can’t really explain how The Hermitage makes me feel, but since visiting the place two years ago I can’t seem to stay away.

  • How to Go to Hogwarts – A Magical Trip on the Jacobite Express from Fort William

    30 July 2021 rebecca

    Okay, not Hogwarts with the castle, the broomsticks, and the potion ingredients. But you can get a steam train across the West Highlands of Scotland and see the same scenery from the films! The steam train and the sights are all you need for Hogwarts to be real. I had my first journey on the Jacobite Express back in 2019 and more recently in May 2021. The Jacobite is a…
