Hebridean Princess: piece for TTG

Earlier this year I spent a week cruising the Scottish Hebrides on the Queen’s favourite ship, the fabulous Hebridean Princess.

I visited Plockton where I found the largest prawns I’ve ever seen, the beautiful isle of Skye and the incomparable Outer Hebrides, where I hiked on Lewis and cycled across Harris.

My itinerary was one of Hebridean Cruises more active Footloose itineraries and it certainly kept me busy!

Read all about what I got up to on my cruise in the July 2nd issue of TTG.

StKilda

St Kilda: articles for About.com

In June, I sailed out from Oban on Scotland’s west coast, to St Kilda, the furthest outpost of the United Kingdom.

It was an adventure – the biggest one I’ve been on in the UK – and I will never forget the sheer excitement of arriving in Village Bay, the jagged rocky landscape rearing above me, the puffins wheeling above my head.

I wrote about the experience for About Travel. You can read about my voyage to the islands with Hebrides Cruises as well as my thoughts on walking on the main island of Hirta.
