ISLE OF SKYE, SCOTLAND
Got a bit of time to kill? Escape to the ultimate great outdoors. Make your way to the Isle of Skye or ‘cloud island’, which is what it roughly translates to in Old Norse, for hikes up rugged mountains, then a shot of whisky… or five, c’mon you deserve it.
Is that sun you see on the weather forecast? Dorset has loads of dreamy beaches (well, the dreamiest in the UK) and is your best bet if you want to get some colour. While you’re there trek it to the Jurassic Coast to see Durdle’s Door. Ain’t sea and limestock incredible? Yeah, it is.
ISLE OF WIGHT, ENGLAND
The island’s synonymous festival island isn’t the only reason to get your butt down to the Isle of Wight. Seaside pirate mini golf, yacht races, the ‘War Horse’ warrior trail, some really white rocks called The Needles are pretty tempting, yo.
