MOAI SUP Board Review

“Paradise is just a paddle away” MOAI is an amazing new brand from the Netherlands, designed in Holland and inspired by the people of Polynesia who invented the art of paddle boarding. As soon as I saw MOAI’s stand up paddle (SUP) boards, I instantly fell in love. The unique design of the boards, alongContinue reading “MOAI SUP Board Review”

Ayr Beach Clean

Annually, there are seven billion tons of debris deposited on beaches, which is not only a health hazard for us who use them recreationally but also an environmental hazard for the marine community which depends on them. That is why it was so important to me to organise a beach clean last weekend: bringing togetherContinue reading “Ayr Beach Clean”

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”

Bracklinn Falls

After last weekends adventure with Glasglow Girls Club, Jen decided she couldn’t get enough of me and invited me along on another trip with Excelsior Adventures. This time to Bracklinn Falls. Having seen pictures of the stunning waterfalls, I jumped at the chance to finally go and see them. Bracklinn Falls is a great, easyContinue reading “Bracklinn Falls”

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. I researched lots of companies and different sized boards for a while before deciding upon this one – I wasContinue reading “Jobes Sport Review – 10.6 ft. Surf SUP”

Ben Donich

Last weekend, my dad and I headed up to Loch Lomond to blow away some of the summer cobwebs, we planned to do a bit of kayaking on the Saturday and take a jolly up Ben Donich on the Sunday morning. However, either being optimists or idiots, neither of us checked the weather forecast… WeContinue reading “Ben Donich”

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”

Birthday Celebrations at Stobo Castle

I had the most lovely birthday weekend ever – thank you so much to everyone for all your kind wishes!

I love hosting parties and decorating the house, laying out all the crisps and nibbles andContinue reading “Birthday Celebrations at Stobo Castle”

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!

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”
