Landscapes & History On Lewis & Harris: A Five Day Itinerary

Last month, we finally embarked on a trip to the Outer Hebrides - a very unintentionally overlooked area of Scotland for us. I was particularly excited to see the legendary beaches of Harris, along with iconic historical sites such as the Callanish Stones and the Gearrannan blackhouse village on Lewis. It's also one of the… Continue reading Landscapes & History On Lewis & Harris: A Five Day Itinerary

Photo Friday: The Incredible Beaches Of Lewis & Harris

We just returned a couple of weeks ago from a fantastic trip to Lewis & Harris - our long-overdue first visit to the Outer Hebrides. I'd meant to do this post pretty much straight away, but apparently planning a wedding takes precedent over absolutely everything else in your life, taking up far more of your… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Incredible Beaches Of Lewis & Harris

Meres, Tarns & Waters: A Short Stint In The Lake District

Last month, we finally crossed the border for the first time in eighteen months - over to the beautiful Lake District. I hadn't been to the Lake District since I was eight years old, so my memory of it is patchy at best. I remember staying with my aunt & uncle and being allergic to… Continue reading Meres, Tarns & Waters: A Short Stint In The Lake District

Spending A Perfect Weekend On Skye

The first time I visited Skye, we only spent 24 hours on the island, and quickly learned that a day is not enough. Of course, I knew that before we went - I just wanted to see some of the highlights before we headed further north. This time, we spent a full weekend there, which… Continue reading Spending A Perfect Weekend On Skye

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

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

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

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

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
