Loch Brandy Glen Clova Weekend

Loch Brandy Glen Clova Weekend

The area of Glen Clova was my very first introduction to the Scottish mountains. Situated just one hour away from Dundee, my school friends and I used to rattle up here in our beat up cars at the age of 17, to spend nights drinking cheap beer and sitting in wet tents pretty much oblivious to the beautiful surroundings. Whilst I’ve somewhat moved on from those days (thankfully), you can see that whilst time changes for us, it never does for the weather, as this recent loch brandy glen clova weekend with Lynne, Liam and Catherine demonstrates.

Ben Lomond with Lynne

What no recipe? Nope, not today; recipes will resume from next Tuesday. 🙂

It’s been a while since I posted anything about my hill walking and as this is a healthy living blog I decided it was time to show you again why I love the great outdoors of Scotland. This recent outing to Ben Lomond, in which Lynne (my other half and the person who behind the scenes corrects my grammar and spelling mistakes 😉 ) accompanied me for her first Munro. [Read more…]
