We have a cookery and cocktail masterclass, several exciting dining suggestions, overnight celebration breaks, the relaunch of one of our favourite Edinburgh properties and the ultimate Christmas present suggestion.
If, like me, you like a map for inspiration, then you will find lots of ideas of what to see and do from our range of Luxury Scotland interactive maps.

If you are looking for a Christmas present which will never be forgotten then how about a trip around the spectacular north coast of Scotland driving in a supercar?
You can choose from a Lamborghini, a Ferrari, and Audi R8 or whatever you wish. Full details including prices and itineraries can be found in our North Coast 500 article.
Whatever you do, enjoy November!
