This weekend past saw the annual weekend retreat into the highlands with hot tubs, fizz, food, views and a pub nearby. On top of all that the weather was fabulous and it really began to feel as though winter was behind us and spring was here. This year we found ourselves in a dinky cottage on the Brewlands estate in Glen Isla; it was the perfect spot with the river running past, gorgeous garden to sit out in, and everything you need for a weekend away, plus it is only an hour’s drive away. As well has having a good laugh with mates, it was also good to be reminded that you don’t have to go too far in Scotland to get away from it all in beautiful surroundings. I can thoroughly recommend it!
