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.

Glen Doll – Jocks Road to Davy’s Bourach

Glen Doll – Jocks Road to Davy’s Bourach

Hey Folks, how are you all doing? Well, after getting all enthusiastic about our two days of summer last week, which I mentioned in this previous post, I was really hoping that when we decided we were going to get in some decent hillwalking over the weekend, doing part of Jocks Road, we would at least keep the temperature above freezing. My wish was granted, the temperature remained above freezing, albeit dropping from 22.5 last Wednesday, a stunning day when I was in Edinburgh, to 9.5 on Saturday…… [Read more…]

Mount Keen

Hi Folks, how’s your week going? Me, well I’m so glad that my expectations for how this trip would turn out were far exceeded, and I can bring you this post, which will allow me some extra time, to photogrpah some recipes that I’ve got coming next week! Mount Keen had been on the cards for some time and we were just waiting for a good weather forecast. Fortunately that happened last weekend and we were able to take full advantage as you can see below! [Read more…]

Driesh and Mayar

Driesh and Mayar

Hey Folks, I always think that its good to mix things up every now and then, so this week, instead of the usual recipe on a Thursday today I’m bringing you some of the stunning views that Liam and I were lucky enough to see when we climbed the two Scottish Munros (mountains in Scotland which have a height over 3,000 ft / 914.4 m), Driesh and Mayar on Saturday 21st February.

Birthday Trip to York

Birthday Trip to York

Hello!! Well it’s good to be back. 🙂 Not from York I mean, no, that trip was a couple of weeks ago and amazing. I mean back from the intense course I was on last week. Jeez, I feel like I left reality for a whole week, totally immersed in the world of Project Management. No cooking, no computing, just immersed in books. My routine was simple. Get up, study, go to the course, come home, eat, study, sleep, repeat. You get the idea. [Read more…]

Photography Academy

Photography Academy

As a blogger, I know how absolutely essential it is to have great photographs of the subjects you spend hours writing about. For me this is primarily food and an active lifestyle (landscape photography). Otherwise how do you drive traffic to your blog and how do you showcase properly your passions in life? [Read more…]

The Fife Lomond Hills

The Fife Lomond Hills

I love Scotland. Sure, it has it’s ups and downs like any other place or just as life does itself. But I’m a firm believer that if you can try to see past all that and look for the good of what you have in front of you and around you, then you may be pleasantly surprised. Walking always helps to clear my mind, especially when changes are happening, and this walk through the Fife Lomond Hills with Lynne was just the ticket! 😀 [Read more…]
