Meikle Bin

Winter has always been my favourite time of the year, I love being all wrapped up and drinking copious amounts of hot chocolate (with mini marshmallows obv) and wearing a bobble hat… any excuse for a bobble hat! I’ve probably climbed more hills in the winter than any other time – the autumn/ snowy surroundingsContinue reading “Meikle Bin”

The drive up is just as beautiful; a straight road from Glasgow, over theContinue reading “Dun Na Cuaiche”
