The Stair Arms Hotel 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. My sister and I, were invited along to The Stair Arms Hotel after work last Friday for a girly overnight trip. Situated alongContinue reading “The Stair Arms Hotel Review”

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”

Summer is finally HERE! And what better way to enjoy the sunshine than a Saturday morning adventure with Glasglow Girls Club. I was invited along to their second hill walk with Excelsior Adventures, where we would be climbing The Whangie and then heading down to explore The Devils Pulpit. In case you haven’t heard, GlasglowContinue reading “Glasglow Girls Club | The Whangie”

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”

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”

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”
