Adventures In Assynt: My Favourite Area Of Scotland

We've had a *very* busy few weeks since lockdown lifted and we finally started to meander back in the direction of normality. I have loads to catch up on here so expect a flurry of posts coming your way with all our adventures, but I wanted to start where I left off - in Assynt,… Continue reading Adventures In Assynt: My Favourite Area Of Scotland

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. Full lockdown hit straight after Christmas, where we have been twiddling our thumbs and going increasingly insane ever since. And… Continue reading Getting Loch-y: A Sunny Day Out In The Trossachs

Edinburgh’s 10 Best Walks & Where To Find Them

We might still be stuck in our local areas for the next few weeks, but the one thing I am thankful for is that Edinburgh is full to the brim with great walks commanding beautiful views.

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

Welcome To South Queensferry: Our New Home!

Finally, after the absolute riot that 2020 has been, something good happened in our lives. We bought a house! An actual, real, brick house. It's kind of scary after years of travel and seasonal jobs, to be finally settling down in a place we're going to call a permanent home. Settling down? What's that?! Does… Continue reading Welcome To South Queensferry: Our New Home!

A Festive Photo Friday: Christmas In Edinburgh

And just like that, it's December! I'd been planning to write a Christmas guide to Edinburgh since last Christmas, but given that virtually everything is cancelled this year, from Christmas markets to drinks at the Dome, it seems a little silly to write a post all about things that aren't even happening. Edinburgh is still… Continue reading A Festive Photo Friday: Christmas In Edinburgh

A Local’s Guide To Leith, Edinburgh’s Coolest Neighbourhood

For the past 18 months, we've been privileged to live in our favourite neighbourhood in Edinburgh, Leith. Leith is the sort of place that feels like its own entity despite being swallowed up by the city long ago to drop its port town roots. There's a community here that you wouldn't expect so close to… Continue reading A Local’s Guide To Leith, Edinburgh’s Coolest Neighbourhood

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
