August is without a doubt the best time of year to visit Edinburgh. Not only because temperatures change from sub zero to mildly tolerable but it’s also the month long arts festival.

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.

Go Ape, Aberfoyle

Not being one for heights, I had successfully managed to avoid visiting Go Ape until now… Last weekend I was invited down to Go Ape’s Aberfoyle site for a Tree Top Adventure with a friend.
