(At Least) Three Things You Need Due to the New Electronics Ban

At first, the new and utterly nonsensical ban on any electronics bigger than a phone on some flights seemed like it was something most of us would happily avoid.

Good morning It seems that some of you managed to tear yourselves away from the stress and struggle of Black Friday and Cyber Monday to do some shopping of a very different kind – for travel.  We now have ten people who have chosen to join our Scotland’s Islands and Highlands Tour next June, including […]
