Glasgow 2014: my piece for City AM

I visited Glasgow for the first time last year – and promptly fell in love with the place.

This year Scotland’s second city will host the Commonwealth Games, nearby Gleneagles will see the Ryder Cup swing by, and Scotland will welcome the world as part of Homecoming Scotland 2014. So there’s never been a better time to visit.

Read my article about Glasgow for City AM here, and look out for more from me on this fantastic city later on in 2014.

You can also find out more about the city by visiting the website of People Make Glasgow here or following them on Twitter here.

The world’s shortest flight in Orkney, Scotland

This autumn I got to fly on the world’s shortest scheduled
commercial flight, a Loganair service which runs from Westray to Papa Westray in Scotland’s beautiful Orkney islands.

forthcoming article in Discover Britain magazine.

Many thanks to Visit Scotland for supporting this trip. 2014 is the Year of Homecoming in Scotland, making it the perfect time to visit.
