Ben Vane

Today we decided to undertake Ben Vane.  This was a risk take as Ben Vane is situated in the popular and busy Argyll and Bute area beside Loch Lomond.  We also thought it might be a busy Munro in general as it has a well-made path up which adds to the attraction for some. We…

Munro Magic – Cairn a’ Chlamain

FREEDOM! Travel restrictions within Scotland have eventually been lifted so the excitement of traveling outside of Fife eventually got to us….so we left. It felt great to be back on the road again and travelling that little bit further afield to somewhere, anywhere, that feels a little bit more isolated than where we’ve been these…

Fife’s Coastal Path

“Now is no time to think of what you do not have.  Think of what you can do with what there is” – Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea Due to Scotland being part of an Island its mostly surrounded by ocean.  The coastline of Scotland is vast and beautiful and it directly…

Wee Hills with Big Views

“I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude”, Henry David Thoreau. It has taken me some time to post this page but I have done so with a heavy heart. One of my number one followers is no longer with us physically and I didn’t like the…

Captivating Coasts

“Sometimes I just need to get away, listen to the sound of the waves, feel the cool breeze on my face, and realise everything is really ok” Due to Lockdown No2 which for us here in Scotland states that one cannot travel outside of their district we are stuck in Fife! Not too a bad…

Munro Madness

October 2020 The leaves are turning, the temperatures are dropping and the sun is rising slightly later each day.  And in one weeks time, the clocks will change, marking the end of British Summer Time.  Why do we still have this seasonal affair, I so wished we didn’t!  As you may know there are Munro’s…

Beinn a’Ghlo Circuit

October 2020 We have been meaning to do this circuit for ages, drove passed it many a times and admired its steep scar up the mountain from afar.  I’m not entirely sure why it took us so long to do…weather, time, COVID or something else has somehow got in the way…today we were going to…

That Was the Week that Was!

Sat 26th Sept – Sat 3rd Oct 2020 Isle of Skye Our week in Skye has been amazing, and our almost isolated Crofting Cottage just absolutely perfect to come back to after a hard day in the hills or a cold evening wandering. Outwith our mountain bagging days that we undertook we thought we’d put…

Bruach na Frithe

Thursday 1st October 2020 We were itching to explore the Black Cuillins once more. This time we decided on the Munro Bruach na Frithe which was meant to provide spectacular views over its sister mountains. As we left the carpark and began our hike, we could see the tops of the Black Cuillin but we…
