A quote for all those who enjoy a little adventure
Hidden by clouds – Fingers Ridge
Somewhere inside the clouds is the slippery and loose Fingers Ridge. If only we could see where.
Outlander tour – missing the story
A tour with Outlander filming locations could be great fun, but unfortunately, I wasn’t impressed. Although I am going to be rather critical, I do admit that the tour was a good way to visit a few of the less accessible sites.
Bothy full of joy – Lookout Bothy
Sometimes it is necessary to turn to plan B. We have to abandon our hopes of walking and climbing the Cuillin Traverse on the Isle of Skye but end up having a joyful and memorable evening in a lovely little bothy overlooking the North Atlantic.
Moat Brae, a place called Neverland
The shadow of Peter Pan lands on the mantelpiece, hands on the hips, feet wide apart. Try to catch the shadow at the National Centre for Children's Literature and Storytelling which opened its doors this summer.
Next-door neighbour Dunblane
The excitement of having many small towns instead of a one mega city is that they are all different. The visit to the next town over feels like a little daytrip.
On top of the UK – Ben Nevis
A promising forecast and an interesting hill is a powerful combination. It is time to walk up Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK.
Backroad to town
Forget the fastest route, take a nice scenic stroll in Stirling and stop by Cambuskenneth Abbey.
Up we go
I focus on the red dots above me. Up they go forming a nice vertical path. Edinburgh International Climbing Arena, just call it Ratho, has hundreds of climbing routes for sports climbing and bouldering.
Windy Linlithgow and its cool palace
The ruin of the Linlithgow Palace is an interesting and fun day trip destination and there is a great Tearoom in the town.
