The day we walked The Old Man of Storr was the day before our wedding, Sam had repeatedly told me over breakfast all of the important things we had to do that day. Mostly involving registering, confirming and paying for wedding related items. Fully aware of the time restraints we had, but determined to do … More Walking The Old Man of Storr
About a week after our failed attempt at capturing the Jacobite train pass over the Glenfinnan Viaduct, Tim and I for real took a journey on the Hogwarts Express. Well, not for real, but as real as you can get if you’re a Muggle. The Jacobite Steam Train operates train journeys from Fort William to … More On board the Hogwarts Express aka The Jacobite
While we were in Scotland, Tim became a wee bit obsessed with the Heilan Coos (Highland Cows). To be fair, they are definitely the ‘cool dudes’ of the animal kingdom. Here are some of the photos he took. Some included fence jumping, pulling over in the car suddenly and a lot of patience. Enjoy.
If you have done any research into visiting the Isle of Skye, chances are you have seen a photo of the Neist Point Lighthouse. A favourite with Instagrammers, it is a photographers dream.

After a very wet and testing night at Loch Lomond, our next stop we were aiming for was around the Fort William area. Instead of driving straight up, which we did on a previous trip, we decided to head west and take a longer scenic route. We ended up at a campsite between Glenfinnan and … More Missing the Hogwarts Express
The Broadford to Elgol drive must be one of the best in Britain, a picturesque single track lane runs for 15 miles to the tiny village. The road is often shared with cows and sheep and the backdrop is idyllic. When we first pulled into our cottage we both had huge smiles on our faces … More Falling in love with Elgol
Last time we were in Scotland (when we’d already decided to return) there had been one location that we passed which I instantly knew was where we had to spend a night. The first time we were there, there were local fishermen with small fires and the wild camping laws meant I knew this would be … More Serenity at Loch Oich
Something that my friends and I often joke about is the test that putting Ikea furniture together has on a relationship. If you and your significant other can put together a piece of Ikea furniture without breaking up in the process, you can stand the test of time. Tim and I haven’t put Ikea furniture … More How to test a relationship at Loch Lomond
The first time I visited Edinburgh I scoffed at the £16.50 price tag to go inside the Castle. I took photos of the outside, feeling proud that I hadn’t wasted what was the price of three glasses of wine in London on a ticket in. My second visit to Edinburgh was just recently with Tim … More Is it worth visiting Edinburgh Castle?
