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”

Birthday Celebrations at Stobo Castle

I had the most lovely birthday weekend ever – thank you so much to everyone for all your kind wishes! This year I decided to invite the girls round for some home-made sangria and prosecco (and lots of it). I love hosting parties and decorating the house, laying out all the crisps and nibbles andContinue reading “Birthday Celebrations at Stobo Castle”

Surfing in Scotland

Road Trip… This weekend, I headed to the west coast of Scotland for some surfing, still being a bit of a newbie, I decided to book a lesson which was scheduled for the Sunday morning so me and my friend headed up late Saturday afternoon and camped on the beach… how romantic?! It’s around aContinue reading “Surfing in Scotland”

Kayaking in Loch Lomond

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”

The Inn on Loch Lomond Review

I had the privilege of visiting The Inn on Loch Lomond at the weekend and absolutely loved it! I have been coming here ever since I can remember and have seen it through many a refurb but have to admit that the interior, food and service, is the best it’s ever been. Located on theContinue reading “The Inn on Loch Lomond Review”

Jet-skiing in Loch Lomond

In case anyone missed it, Scotland has been having the most glorious weather lately and everyone is in just the best mood ever! Summer is well and truly under way… My parents have a little place up in Inverbeg, Loch Lomond, where I’m very fortunate to have spent most of my weekends as a child.Continue reading “Jet-skiing in Loch Lomond”

Road Trip: Glen Etive

I had the best Easter weekend EVER! It was so lovely to have a few days off from my busy work schedule to go and explore some more of Scotland. I started off the weekend climbing Conic Hill up in Balmaha and then climbed Ben A’an the following day. Finishing off with a road tripContinue reading “Road Trip: Glen Etive”

The Arrochar Trail

Soooo I was super productive last Sunday and managed to fit in a quick hill walk before my mum was up looking for her Mother’s Day presents. I also realised this would have been a good walk for any active mums before going for a nice Mother’s Day lunch but as usual I was soContinue reading “The Arrochar Trail”

Ben Arthur’s Bothy

It’s not often I get to say this, but the weather was amazing in Scotland over the weekend. It was still FREEEZING (obvs) but the sun was out, and everyone was absolutely buzzin’. And what better way to enjoy the weather than with a hill walk and a trip to the pub?! After spending theContinue reading “Ben Arthur’s Bothy”

Cruach Tairbert

The first hill climb of 2018 started off well… NAAAT! Thinking that it’d be a great idea to travel up to Loch Lomand to climb Cruach Tairbert in the middle of all the snow that we have in Scotland right now was not one of my brighter ideas. Me and my friend headed off aroundContinue reading “Cruach Tairbert”

Bali: Climbing Mount Batur

If you ever get the opportunity to visit Bali… take it! I guarantee you’ll question why you didn’t go sooner. I visited Bali last May and am planning to visit again soon. It sounds super cringe, but it was honestly the holiday of a lifetime. I stayed in Pan Pacific Nirwana, which was incredible! ItContinue reading “Bali: Climbing Mount Batur”

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”
