By Jane Buckley

Loch Long

The mountainous region of northern Scotland abounds with inland lakes, torrential rivers, meandering burns and coastal bays, which all present a challenge to the keen fisherman – or woman.

Summer Holidays in Norway

By Jane Buckley

The village of Reine in Lofoten, Norway

If you are looking for somewhere completely new to take your summer holiday, but don’t want to have to travel to the other side of the world, Norway is a great destination for families, couples and young people, and only a short flight from the UK.

Camping that Takes you Right into Big Bear Country

By Jane Buckley

Big Bear Country

When it comes to big bear camping, you could do a lot worse than Big Bear Lake in the San Bernandino mountains of California, USA. This is a beautiful area just a bit south and east of the Los Angeles basin. It has a natural lake surrounded by forests of brush and trees and is indeed a fine habitat yet for the American black bear. There are many campgrounds, both public and private, for everything from tents to large motorized RVs. And if “roughing it” isn’t your choice for big bear camping, there are many resort hotels in the area.

More than 125 miles of semi-wilderness trails exist for the…

How to Pack for a Weekend Away

By Jane Buckley

How to Pack for a Weekend Away
