getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life is good for the soul, and
in Scotland you don’t need to wander far off the beaten track to discover your
own little corner of the world where you can slow down and enjoy life in the slow
lane for a while.
One of my favourite escapes is the Cowal
Peninsula in the quieter west region of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National
. There’s nothing quite like a gentle
stroll through the Argyll Forest Park
, or following the cascading Arklet Burn as it flows through Puck’s
Glen. Benmore Botanic Gardens is always
so peaceful and if you head down some of the windy minor roads on the peninsula
you’re quite likely to discover your own little piece of heaven on a tranquil
beach somewhere overlooking a sea loch.
