GB PLACES

Great Britain

TRESCO

1.

The Caribbean of the UK – white sand beaches, palm trees and no traffic. Just a short hop from Land’s End airport or a ferry ride from Penzance, so no queues or customs to worry about. See the exotic Abbey Garden with flowers from around the world, recently introduced red squirrels and the Valhalla maritime museum. There are five-star restaurants and places to stay, and you can walk your socks off or hop on a boat to one of the other islands.

NORTH UIST

2.

The views on to the beach change every day, with white sand and myriad blues in the sea and sky. You are able to take epic walks, luckily mostly in sunshine, fresh langoustines off the fishing boat. Enjoy delicious meals at Berneray Bistro. Take a boat ride to the Isle of Harris, where there are more enormous beaches and the gin distillery. You'll see sea otters, eagles, seals and red deer. It is the place to go if you need some big sky.
