A day paddling the River Earn from Forteviot to Bridge of Earn to celebrate a day without kids! Not even the boat starting to take on water (and the pump failing too) could dampen our enthusiasm and enjoyment for such a fab day. And here's the film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NdMdahfmQ8

It’s hard not to get lost in The Lost Valley
I've driven along the A82 through Glencoe many times. The road is an outdoor addicts dream as you pass mountain after river after ridge after yet more stunning views. Despite the many drive-throughs, I had no idea the Lost Valley (or Coire Gabbail) existed until about 4 years ago when I walked the Bidean Nan … Continue reading It’s hard not to get lost in The Lost Valley

Ambling the Annandale Way
Two days walking and camping the fantastic Annandale Way from Moffat to Hoddom Castle with Adventure Man and Gav. The weather was glorious and the scenery was even better. People forget the south of Scotland, assuming the North is where the WOW moments occur. But the south has the x factor if you know where … Continue reading Ambling the Annandale Way
Lochnagar and Gelder Shiel Bothy
A trip to Lochnagar this week from Crathie rather than Loch Muick. And a night in Gelder Shiel Bothy. Brilliant. And the film below:
