Climbing Stac Pollaidh, One Of Scotland’s Best Hikes

A couple of weeks ago, I climbed a mountain! It's ridiculous that I hadn't done this in so long, given the amount of mountains there are in Scotland and how easy it is to climb some of them. Lockdown has stripped me of all my fitness, so despite deciding I'd start tackling some more munros,… Continue reading Climbing Stac Pollaidh, One Of Scotland’s Best Hikes

Exploring Coco Chanel’s Abandoned Mansion In Scotland

If there's one thing I LOVE doing, it's finding abandoned buildings you can explore - and even better if they still have things inside to showcase the history. And even better again if they HAVE a lot of history. Scotland, luckily, has loads to choose from. Between some 3,000 castles and numerous abandoned stately homes,… Continue reading Exploring Coco Chanel’s Abandoned Mansion In Scotland

Getting Loch-y: A Sunny Day Out In The Trossachs

Exciting news, everyone - our lockdown is ending TOMORROW! It's been a rough, rough, rough winter, having not been allowed to even leave Edinburgh since the beginning of November, almost a full six months ago.

Photo Friday: 20 Photos Of Glorious Glencoe

Whenever someone asks where they should go in Scotland, my immediate answer is GLENCOE! (Complete with capitals and exclamation mark.) It's a typical choice, and it's one of the most popular places in Scotland. But as with many popular places, there is a damn good reason for it. I feel a little guilty as I've… Continue reading Photo Friday: 20 Photos Of Glorious Glencoe

Exploring Scotland & The World Virtually With Google Street View

I don't know about you, but I am addicted to maps. Whenever Ash finds me perusing Google Maps, he basically sighs and leaves me to it, knowing that he's lost me for another evening. And lately, it hasn't just been maps - it's been Google Street View as well. I never used to like the… Continue reading Exploring Scotland & The World Virtually With Google Street View

Staycations in 2021 – What We’ve Got Planned

2020 was the year of staycations. 2021... is also going to be the year of staycations. If you're wondering what a staycation is, the definition is a surprisingly controversial topic. For some, staycations are holidays within your own city; for others, they are holidays within your own country, whether it's a hotel city break or… Continue reading Staycations in 2021 – What We’ve Got Planned

Photo Friday: Silly Signs Around The World

With very little travel content to write lately, I've been going through my Asia posts, some of the earliest blog posts I wrote on this site, to update them and make them a little more useful, entertaining and just generally upgrading them with more photos (apparently I used to think 10 photos was enough to… Continue reading Photo Friday: Silly Signs Around The World

2021 Challenges (oh yes, I’m doing it)

I'm sure you'll all agree with me when I say the best word to describe how I feel about 2021 is apprehensive. Normally in my yearly round-up posts, I set out some goals for what I want to achieve in the upcoming year. And while I touched on some goals, they were general goals; not… Continue reading 2021 Challenges (oh yes, I’m doing it)
