3 September 2019 It’s Scotland. It’s raining. The plan was to take a drive around the island. If we spot something that we can see, without getting too wet, great. We just wanted to have an easy day, really. Our first attempt was Duart Castle. But it was covered in scaffolding. Then we tried a…

2 September 2019 From the first time I considered visiting Scotland, I wanted to go to the Isle of Skye. I had seen some photographs of the Fairy pools, but managing to fit it in, with sufficient time on Skye, and without causing excessive driving distances, was a bit tricky. And when I discovered that…

1 September 2019 And slowly, but surely, we are making our way back South. Back home. We were booked on the early ferry back to the Scottish Mainland. Driving to St. Margeret’s Hope, I couldn’t help quietly giggling at some of the things we’ve spotted along the way throughout Scotland. Like the seagulls. Every afternoon,…

31 August 2019 It’s Scotland. It’s raining. A good day to take it slow, maybe. So we figured, at some point, we would just take a drive, and see what we can, without getting too wet… The Orkney islands have a very long history, with some of its historic sites going back to around 3000…

29 August 2019 Nope – we are not quite far enough North. We are ultimately trying to get to the Orkney islands, but we figured that having to try figure out ferries after a day’s drive, might be too daunting, so we are heading for Thurso, or Brough really, on the Northern coast of Scotland….

Took a drink beside the Spey

Took a drink beside the Spey

28 August 2019 A day in the Scottish Highlands. Where to go. It’s rather overwhelming, really. But we are close to the Spey valley, which means… whisky. Oh, and be sure to spell that without the ‘e’. We don’t want to be talking about the Irish version of whiskey, when we are referring to good…

27 August 2019 The Scottish Highlands! Heilan coos, hopefully! And maybe some other animals. I’m excited. We headed North into the Cairngorms National Park – the largest national park in the British isles. It has the Cairngorms mountains at the heart of it, with some other ranges added for good measure. The A9 runs through…
