It is a location with top food, excellent shopping and historic sites across the town centre, not to mention those wonderful Scots themselves, with their dry humour, haggis and sporrans.

How to create the ultimate Ayurvedic retreat in London

Country & Town House | 17 Jan 2023

You’ll also help the environment – by jettisoning long plane trips – and avoid pesky airport queues and jet lag.
