Britain’s Best Kept Secret

Thursday, October 20, 2016




Have you heard of the Foula Island? If you haven’t, you’re missing out big time!

It's Britain's most remote inhabited home to a population of only thirty people, hundreds of Shetland ponies and huge colonies of seabirds. Yup, there are more ponies on this tiny island than actual residents :)

If that’s not quirky enough, this little thing is just three-and-a-half miles long by two-and-a-half miles wide, with rugged peaks that suddenly end at sheer cliffs 1,200 feet above the wild Atlantic. But what it lacks in size, it surely delivers in mesmerizing ocean views, incredibly friendly people and a rare, to most of us by now, a slower kind of lifestyle…

Ever since I read about this place I’ve been daydreaming about renting this cottage and spending a couple of days enjoying the stillness, the fresh cold air and the change of pace...

Doesn’t that sound magical?

P.S: Also, the incredible Beachy Head in England and Italy's best kept secret.
P.P.S: Plus, Benbulben in Ireland and this mysterious tree tunnel.
