Looming exams? Only a couple of weekends of freedom left before you end up living in the library? A few weeks ago a few fiends and I decided to get out of the city and spend a weekend away in the magical land of Crieff- a small Scottish town just over an hour outside of Dundee, perfect for that much needed city break.

Dundee is the perfect place for those of you keen on doing a bit of exploring. For those of you on ERASMUS and looking to experience a bit of Scottish culture, you’re in luck. Crieff is home to the Famous Grouse, where we embarked on the Hot Toddy experience and became whiskey connoisseurs. For you adrenaline addicts-you’re also in luck. Grab a few quad bikes at Crieff Hydro like we did and travel over the Scottish moors in style. Or for those you who just want a change of scenery- the views of the mountains are also pretty sweet.

There are plenty of great finds on cottagesandcastles.com and of course airbnb.com so why not book a weekend and have one last adventure before the end of the semester? You know you want to!
