Arduaine Gardens near Oban

Beautiful gardens in a extremely peaceful setting ringed by inspiring views out to sea and various West Coast islands. You just feel the cares of the world slip away as you walk round.... good for the soul!

The Museum of Scotland, Chambers Street, Edinburgh.

This beautiful labyrinth of Scottish treasures is a 90's extension to the original Royal Museum. Afternoons slip away exploring exhibitions juxtaposed with historic views, crossing voids on bridges and climbing to the breath taking roof garden.

This has to be one of the most breathtaking houses in Scotland, a truly magical place.

The GFT (Glasgow Film Theatre) n Rose Street in Glasgow.

My first lectures at Art School in 2002 were held in cinema 1, and ever since I've escaped there on many occasions. A completely unique building, with friendly staff and an otherworldly atmosphere.

The "Peace Garden" within Barshaw Park in Paisley.

Its colourful, quiet (except when I take my children), pretty and looks like a garden from another time - a real place to escape to.

Glamis Castle is set in the rolling hills of Angus, approximately 20km from the North Sea, in an area of considerable ancient history. Whilst the village is home to a curious old stone, said to be a monument to King Malcolm II, and some attractive eighteenth-century cottages, its most notable attribute is the grandeur of Glamis Castle.

The modern visitor approaching the Highland Castle for the first time cannot but draw breath in admiration as he journeys down the mile-long avenue rich in colour, flanked in spring by swathes of yellow and cream daffodils, or the colours in the rows of autumn trees.

Spires, turrets, towers and statues will seize your attention initially, but there is so much more to explore in this legendary Castle. With its strong links with history, royalty and fiction, Glamis Castle is one of Scotland’s most impressive visitor attractions.

Paisley Abbey

A building which has been continuously active at the heart of its community for longer than almost any other in Scotland.

Calanais Stones. Perhaps the most intriguing and haunting of standing stone sites in Europe.
