After taking a look at the fab options on the farm back in early 2016, we revisited the topic this year and scoped out newbies like The Tattie Barn at Cambo Estate, Cow Shed Crail and GG’s Yard.

The spiralling cost of hen holidays has prompted a move towards high-end staycations.

3. Real life wedding: Ashleigh Hewitt and Bruce Wayne Hamilton Mackenzie

Our most viewed real life wedding of 2017 comes as no surprise.

8. Real life wedding: Ashlyn McDonald and Stephen McLean
