Is epic Royal Bled Europe golf’s best kept secret?

///

Golf trips are sacred: they’re opportunities to experience new destinations, create lifelong memories and to spend time with your people. The likes of Pinehurst, Bandon and the great links courses of Scotland and Ireland might immediately spring to mind when you’re going through your bucket list but sometimes straying off the beaten track brings the greatest rewards.  Slovenia may not be the most obvious Europe golf trip and yet for those who do venture to this stunningly beautiful country with its dramatic mountain views and sweeping valleys, they will realise they have been let in on Europe’s best kept secret. …

Perfect Peatzeria in beautiful Bowmore

You can’t visit Islay or write about this island without mentioning the peat. In days gone by it was the reason the water here ran a strange colour of brown. And for much longer it has given Islay’s many world-famous whiskies their distinctive aroma and taste, but peat is also behind the name of one of the best restaurants in Islay. Peatzeria (see what they’ve done there?) sits in the heart of Bowmore, the capital of Islay and faces out onto the waters of Loch Indaal. It’s a stunning spot, quite frankly. As we walk along Shore Street towards the…
