Champagne and oysters for lunch?  That’s how I roll (ed for one day only…). Having been very kindly invited for lunch at Rogano and sat at the table end with all the pregnant and shellfish allergic diners (score) it seemed only right that I should do enough tasting for us all.  Cue two enormous oyster platters arriving…  I took one…

Over the sea to Skye

Those kind of weekends that only Scotland can give you…  When it rains rains rains and you just don’t care.  When you drink hot chocolates in front of the fire to dry your toes.  When you accidentally take the long loop walk instead of the short and do 5 miles and you don’t pass another soul.  When you run across…

Truly one of the most beautiful and thoughtful hotels I have ever stayed at (can a hotel be thoughtful?  Yes, yes it can).
