Ardnamurchan Peninsula –  Day 1

Friday 4th March 2022 Ardnamurchan Peninsula “A grand adventure is about to begin” Winnie the Pooh. Having a week off work we were away to explore some more of our very beautiful Scotland.  We had planned to start off in Nether Lochaber to catch the Corran ferry across the water to Ardgour, lasting about 5…

Binnend

February 2022 With weather conditions here in Scotland still being horrendous and by horrendous I mean high winds and rain, it has meant walks have had to be at a lower level. A positive, I always try and look for a positive, is that we have explored places we probably have thought about exploring but…

Crianlarich

Beinn Tulaichean and Cruach Àrdrain January 2020 Physical strength will get you to the start line.  But mental strength will get you to the finish line. We headed into the heart of Rob Roy country for our walk this weekend.   We were in the very beautiful Crianlarich area and heading up Beinn Tulaichean and Cruach…

The Glenfarg Tunnels

January 2020 Here’s a slightly different walk to some of our usual hills, glens or coastal walks.   We were off to explore the Glenfarg Tunnels.  Unusual? This walk might not be for those who are claustrophibic, scared of the dark or dark tunnels or possibly scared of ghosts! But it is for those that like…

Cairngorms

Weather conditions at present are spectacular for hillwalkers and even more so for hill walkers like us who just love taking photos…its paradise. We decided to have a wander around the Cairngorms as conditions here were said to be amazing.  There…

Mullach Clach a’Bhlàir

Happiness is the feeling of warm sunlight hitting you on a cold winters day. Temperatures have plummeted which has brought us some crisp clear days so we headed to the Highlands. We parked our van overnight at beautiful Glen Feshie.  The evening was stunning.  We had no light pollution here whatsoever so the night was…

Glencoe

Meall á Bhuiridh Creise Winter is not a season, its a celebration. The month of October has pretty much been a washout…literally.  Although ‘they’re’ saying its been one of our warmest October’s in a long time, its also been one of the wettest, in my opinion.  Everyday at some point it has rained! November came…

Fittie

Aberdeen Last time I was up in Aberdeen (Sept) I met an elderly gentleman by the sea front who had arrived to photograph a lighthouse I had just been taking photos of. We chatted for some time with him telling me how he came up here most days at different times, taking photos of this…
