MEET THE 'A' TEAM

Hiya, we're Scotland travel bloggers, Gemma + Craig Armit. We have been adventuring together since we met in 2012. Gemma is the professional blogger behind Two Scots Abroad, Craig looks good in the photos. We both like tartan!

In 2015, we pressed pause on our careers, trying out long-term travel for size; visiting 16 countries in the Americas and Europe in 17 months.

Now residing in Scotland, the adventure has not stopped. Through our ridiculously helpful travel guides and social media channels, we continue to encourage every type of traveller to get off their armchairs and to the airport.

You will find us seeking out the street art in cities, road tripping to discover new destinations, hiking the hills, hitting the slopes, and chasing new music with a beer/wine in one hand and a camera in the other.
