How To Spend The Perfect Sunday In Edinburgh

Last Sunday, we took a walk to the other side of Edinburgh's city centre to visit a market, bumped into some friends, took a walk into town with them, and grabbed a hot chocolate with a view of the castle before heading home again. It was, given the storm of 2020, a perfect day. It… Continue reading How To Spend The Perfect Sunday In Edinburgh

Photo Friday: Autumn Is So Beauti-fall In Perthshire

As the world continues to crumble around us, I can't help but notice the beauty that emerges. The people standing up and trying to make the world a better place. Those who stand up for those who are not being heard. Amongst the chaos, there are still trickles of good in the world that, no… Continue reading Photo Friday: Autumn Is So Beauti-fall In Perthshire

Fall Foliage & Failed Frolics In Picturesque Perthshire

Last month, we had planned a weekend trip to Perthshire - one of the only things we'd actually planned in advance this year, which was a slight risk - and I was excited to explore more of this part of Scotland. I've always enjoyed Perthshire - the shores of Kinloch Rannoch and the charming town… Continue reading Fall Foliage & Failed Frolics In Picturesque Perthshire

Four Islands, One Epic Weekend On The Isle Of Mull

After a wonderful trip a few weeks ago, I have some important news: the Isle Of Mull might just be my new favourite place in Scotland! As with most trips this summer, our trip to Mull was fairly spontaneous, and although I was looking forward to seeing what Scotland's fourth largest island had to offer,… Continue reading Four Islands, One Epic Weekend On The Isle Of Mull

Camping & Castles: An Aberdeenshire Adventure

All throughout lockdown, I was jonesing for one type of trip in particular: a camping trip. I just wanted to park up near a loch or the bottom of a mountain and take our tent into the middle of nowhere and just be away from it all. I've always been a "west coast is best… Continue reading Camping & Castles: An Aberdeenshire Adventure

Exploring The Cute Coastal Towns Of Fife, Scotland

Considering I've now lived across the bridge from Fife for over eighteen months, I've seen very little of my neighbouring county. The Kingdom Of Fife. It sounds so grand, doesn't it? Truthfully, Fife has never really piqued my interest in the way that other places around Scotland have. Until last year, I don't think I'd… Continue reading Exploring The Cute Coastal Towns Of Fife, Scotland

August Adventures: Islands, Cities & A Failed Camping Trip

July was a busy month after being in lockdown for so long - but I think August may just have been even busier! We've had friends to visit, we've taken trips to other cities, we've been on a train for the first time since January, and we've even been on a tour (a boat tour,… Continue reading August Adventures: Islands, Cities & A Failed Camping Trip

Post-Lockdown Adventures: 4 Weekend Trips In Scotland

After more than three months in lockdown, Scotland finally lifted their five mile travel limit at the beginning of July. Naturally, the first day we could go out, we went straight out to nature, and subsequently spent four weekends in a row roaring our way around some of Scotland's hidden gems and underrated sites. If… Continue reading Post-Lockdown Adventures: 4 Weekend Trips In Scotland

An Anniversary Trip – Staying In A Castle In Argyll & Bute

In happier times, we celebrated our ten year anniversary. Ten. YEARS! It's hard to believe it was only a few months ago, in January, that we set off from Edinburgh for a weekend of rare luxury in a castle over on the west coast of Scotland. It was an area I've never visited either, so… Continue reading An Anniversary Trip – Staying In A Castle In Argyll & Bute

50 Photos To Make You Want To Visit Edinburgh

I'm not going to lie... I've been really lacking motivation recently. Not just for the blog, but for virtually everything in my life. I thought I was okay. I could see light at the end of the tunnel, and I still can, but it feels like we're wading through treacle trying to get there. I've… Continue reading 50 Photos To Make You Want To Visit Edinburgh
