Battle of Bannockburn, Braveheart and Stirling Castle... all in one trip!

With a name like COLIN McALPIN who better to go exploring Scotland... and fight the Battle of Bannockburn, pay tribute to Braveheart and visit Stirling Castle…

HE who holds Stirling holds Scotland. And with this in mind the Scots under their legendary King Robert Bruce, he of the spider that inspired him never to give up, took on the English under King Edward II at the historic Battle of Bannockburn... and over two bloody days 700 years ago routed them in what became known as the First War of Independence to establish Scotland as a nation.



Perfect introduction to the true flavours of this exotic island...

On a recent trip to the most easterly of the Caribbean islands, ANDREA McVEIGH and her husband were introduced to the true flavour of Barabdos...

BARBADOS is pleasingly green with a fabulous tropical climate, that much we know. But what surprised me was that I could smell the humidity in the air, making everything seem so fecund, from the palm trees lining the roads to the dazzlingly colourful blooms on the frangipani trees.

This compact island, measuring just 21 miles long and 14 miles wide, is the most easterly of the Caribbean islands. The national language is English and driving is on the left, so it’s easy to see why it’s a popular choice for British and Irish tourists.



It’s quiet, clean, and the home of karaoke and kimonos...

With Hanami - the traditional Japanese custom of enjoying the sakura (cherry blossom) bloom all over Japan - just beginning, NATASHA WARCHOLAK heads to Tokyo, the well-established fashion hub of Japan and cultural hot-spot Kyoto...

GOING TO Japan directly from the UK or Ireland involves crossing two continents: Europe and Asia. This is not a mere city break or short holiday – this is a serious travel commitment, but worth every minute of it.
