Awe-inspiring architecture

Escape with us to the Isle of Skye to see Room Studio‘s impressive new build overlooking Portree harbour. The plunge pool (yup, plunge pool) is a sight to behold. In Glasgow, the basement of a four-storey west end townhouse is transformed by architect George Buchanan, while in Edinburgh we bask in a sun-lit home extension close to Portobello beach by Konishi Gaffney.

Characterful interior design

There are three stunning homes for you to pore over, each with their own distinct character, from a Victorian house by the sea from interior designer Harriet Hughes to a block of student accommodation restored by Nicola Harding to its Georgian townhouse glory, but with a contemporary vibe. And you’ll love Amber Yard‘s warm and colourful seaside escape in the East Neuk.

Scotland’s greatest culinary secret

If you haven’t heard of Mark Donald, head chef at the Michelin-starred Glenturret Lalique restaurant in Crieff, you ought to rectify that. We spent a day with the chef and his team to find out what it takes to become a Michelin star and why this restaurant is a must-visit for any foodie.
