Northcore Changing Robe Review

A changing robe has been on my kit wish list for ages now. I’ve always used the cheaper, towel robes, mainly just for changing outdoors but I’ve been on the look out recently for a more durable robe that will keep me warm and protected against the Scottish elements. When I came across Northcore onContinue reading “Northcore Changing Robe Review”

Just a half hour drive outside of Edinburgh city centre, in the small village of Pathhead, is one of the most charming Scottish hotels I’ve ever had the luxury of staying in.

Inchconnachan, Loch Lomond

More commonly known as Wallaby island, Inchconnachan is situated amongst the larger islands in the middle of Loch Lomond. Having visited last year, I was keen to go back and explore some more. And of course, see the wallabies again. The wallabies were first brought to Inchconnachan in the 1940’s after the second World War, byContinue reading “Inchconnachan, Loch Lomond”

Jobes Sport Review – 10.6 ft. Surf SUP

It’s been just over 3 months since I purchased my first SUP board from Jobe Sports and I absolutely love it. It is perfect for me and I use it almost weekly for solo paddling.

Honeymoon Bridge

I woke up on Sunday hangover free and full of good intentions, Scotland’s weather forecast, however, did not… The plan was to climb a Munro, just past Arrochar, but driving up there, realised the Scottish weather was going to get the better of me, it was blowing a hooley with low clouds and drizzly rainContinue reading “Honeymoon Bridge”

Glasgow’s Tontine Lanes

I’m lucky to work in among these secret lanes so it was so much fun to watch them being transformed into an array of Scottish pop up stalls with food and drink, art exhibits, live music and my personal favourite, crazy golf. In case you haven’t heard, the secret lane, tucked away in the MerchantContinue reading “Glasgow’s Tontine Lanes”

Summer 2018 is well and truly underway with Scotland having a massive heatwave this week! Who needs Ibiza when you’re living in 30° heat?! Typical Brit moaning about the weather but I swapped my hiking boots for my wet-suit last weekend and headed out onto the loch. It was just waaay too hot for aContinue reading “Kayaking in Loch Lomond”

Ben Vane

This was, hands down, the hardest hill I’ve ever climbed. Ben Vane, is described as only just reaching munro status at 915 metres. So, if like naïve, little me, you think this will be a nice, easy stroll – you are very much mistaken. Ben Vane is one of the Arrochar Alps, standing slightly separateContinue reading “Ben Vane”
