summer social date

The school holidays are nearly done, and you've played a blinder mums and dads! We've picked the top spots across Glasgow, Falkirk, Edinburgh, Fife and everywhere in between to enjoy some ME TIME.

Food 

With new restaurants popping up on the weekly, it just seems like we're spoilt for choice recently! Our top recommendations for a day of top nosh are...   

Potluck

This hidden gem can be found along Nithsdale Road in the Southside of Glasgow. If it's brunch you're craving, both sweet and savoury options are inventive and so so tasty! 

 

The Birds & Bees 

Imagine eating in a converted farm, a stone’s throw from the historic Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle. Well you could be, pop along to the quirky The Birds & Bees for award-winning food, real ales and a wine list as long as you'd hope and dream. 

 

The cutest little pub

Brel 

Located on the iconic Ashton Lane in Glasgow's West End. Every Tuesday Brel hosts a Fondue & Raclette night, which is any cheese lovers dream! All day Monday, and Tuesday - Friday before 6pm there is also the iconic a moules frites for £6. Romantic nights out done easy.

 

Jam Jar 

Cafe by day, restaurant by night. Head along to the Bridge of Allan to find this hidden gem. Serving all things breakfast, coffee & cake, lunch and dinner... no matter what time you pop in you're guaranteed great food!

 

Date Night!

Dishoom Edinburgh 

Indian tapas at it's best, enjoyed in the heart of St.Andrews Square, a stones throw away from Waverley train station! Perfect for catching up with friends or date night. 

 

Days out:  

Stroll on the beach, see the sights and explore beautiful Scotland! Here's a top list of must sees... 

Loch Lomond

With so much to do, days out at Loch Lomond are far from boring! If you're feeling active why not venture up Conic Hill on the east side of the loch for an amazing view or take one of the Loch cruises. Perhaps, you're more in the mood for some leisurely strolls, lunch and retail therapy? In that case head along to Loch Lomond Shores, along the strip you'll find perfect lunch spots and plenty of shops. 

 

Edinburgh castle 

One of the most exciting historic sites in Scotland! Set in the heart of the capital city - the scenery will take your breath away. Whilst in Edinburgh, check out all the amazing shows happening at this years Fringe festival.  

 

Beautiful Beaches 

Fife houses some of the best beaches across Scotland, the award winning Burntisland beach is a MUST. Overlooking the Firth of Forth this  sandy beach with rock pools has so much to do with a seaside park, crazy golf course, picnic tables and an annual summer fairground - it's perfect for a date.

Treat Yourself 

Take that much needed time out and spoil yourself. Feet up please...


Blythswood Spa 

A night away could be on the cards... this hotel has everything you could possibly need. Five star dining in the restaurant on the ground floor or afternoon tea in the Saloon followed by cocktails on the terrace overlooking the square. Wake up and take it easy at the luxury spa, the relaxation pools are something else! 

 

Gin Spa

The first ever gin inspired botanical day spa - two of our favourite things!! The prefect day out with the girls, sipping on gin and enjoying some pampering.  



Set in lush gardens, staying here combines the convenience of a town centre location with the peaceful feel of a countryside retreat. Best of all, the views are something else, overlooking historic Dunfermline.
