As one of the most popular destinations in the world, the Scottish Highlands is unmatched when it comes to green mountains, lush glens and vast lakes. Being able to see it in all its beauty can be a challenge when considering just how large it is, and finding a place to stay that grants easy access to some of the most scenic spots in the Highlands is important.

Enter Ness Walk, a luxury property combining a peaceful stay with immersive experiences. Think foraging in the woods, tasting whisky in the Cairngorm Mountains with an acclaimed food writer, cruising down Loch Ness and canoeing at sunrise on Glen Affric.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity.

Seoul Garners Good Fortune on a Wave of Cultural Popularity

First came the musical mega-hit, “Gangnam Style,” in 2012, leading the band PSY to the top of the charts, only to be followed by other beloved K-pop bands like BTS. Then, in 2020, Parasite became the first non-English-language film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. The following year, the latest in a long line of Korean television shows or K-dramas, Squid Game became Netflix’s most watched series and the most watched program in 94 countries. Add the rise of Korean fine dining around the globe along with the demand for K-beauty products and high fashion, often influenced by the traditional Korean garb called hanbok, and you arrive at the cultural phenomenon called hallyu, or the Korean Wave. Indeed, South Korean popular culture, with Seoul at its epicenter, reached such a status Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts installed a hallyu exhibition, currently on display through July, which originated at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.
