Farewell, Mister Frodo #losingapet #heartbroken

A little over 3 days ago a small but very intense light went out, leaving my life forever darker, and I am heartbroken. Those of you who have never shared your life with a pet may not understand, but the rest of you will. I never contemplated having children – my maternal instincts are all for animals, […]

Over the sea to Skye… #Scotland #holiday

I’ve had a little break from the holiday tales, but there are still some more wonderful pictures to come… Our route took us next to Mallaig, where we travelled to last year on the Hogwart’s Express (Jacobite Steamer, to give it the proper name), but this time we were taking the ferry across to the […]

Touring #Scotland – Oban to Glenfinnan #holiday

Starting with a view, always the best place to start! These are the views either way from our hotel …with a peek of the bridge we need to cross for the next stage of our journey up the West Coast. I thought we’d take a quick stop just up the road at the Scottish Sea […]

Touring the West Coast of #Scotland

I’m on holiday – yay! As a result, writing posts will take a back seat to the glorious views and rich history of Scotland for a few days – hope you will enjoy the ride. This year, instead of breaking our journey up from the UK south coast to the farmhouse above Inverness with just […]

#ScottishHighlands – Glen Cannich, our last day. For now…

And so to wrap up the autumn holiday jaunt… Having taken you with us to visit Plodda Falls and Tomich, we STILL managed to squeeze a little more into this wonderful day: a drive down Glen Cannich, which is one glen over from Glen Affric Once again, apologies for the speed of my panning – I really […]

Another small slice of the #ScottishHighlands

My last trip to the Highlands is fading into the past, but I still have lots of photos I haven’t shared, (and plenty I’m not going to, either!), so here is another little slice of heaven… Driving back from Plodda Falls (see the waterfall post here, if you haven’t already – and if not, why not?), […]

Enjoy a little slice of the glorious #ScottishHighlands: #CaledonianForest & Plodda Falls

The holiday is over, normal service will soon be resumed… But I still have a few photos and videos to share – yay!  🙂 So here goes: prepare for an enticing dip into beautiful and awesome mother nature – and also a little trip into one of the main locations in DESPRITE MEASURES , the tale […]

The Great Adventure continues! #Scotland #Highlands #HogwartsExpress

As promised, moving on up The Great Glen provided opportunity to take a fantastic day trip on The Jacobite Steam Train – the very train that doubles for the HOGWART’S EXPRESS! Harry Potter fans, eat your hearts out! This is me and Frodo, about to embark on our adventure. The charming ‘ordinary class’ carriages – […]

Travelling The Great Glen – #Scottish #Highlands

Those of you who’ve been here before probably know that I commute regularly between the UK south coast and the Scottish Highlands. Most often these are working trips, which involve flying between the two ends of the country to save time. Twice a year, we drive the route, allowing me to take my Jack Russell (Frodo) […]
