s autumn sets in, we may not have the warmest of weather but
there’s no reason not to wrap up and enjoy the great outdoors.
Why not make the most of the natural environment around

also a feature about the Isle of Harris by Adam Duxbury (p49), who went in
search of Harris Tweed and found a serene location full of wild moorlands
and coastal beauty. On p59, we look at ways to enjoy a break in Guernsey,
including taking a walk up on the island’s clifftops or indulging in some tasty
local food as part of Tennerfest.
Our other features include rugby star Sam Warburton talking about his
career and sharing some of his favourite highlights in Cardiff on p16, and
insider insights about Padstow, Paris and London.There’s also a rather fiery

with fancy dress and flaming processions!
