My dear Blogaterie, welcome to the fridge of the world, Fort William, Scotland! This morning we awoke (as one that is still living usually does), and looking out of the window of our room at the Inn on Loch Lomond, we saw the Loch of course and rain falling from the sky onto our car […]

B Bumbles On

I have been a little quiet on here recently, a trip to Scotland with very little signal is the most part but also, I’ve been walking. This for me is the best kind of therapy I have found for my mental health. I guess so helpful I haven’t found a need to rant about the […]

The exhibition – ‘Climbing, Camping and the Club’ – features 35 black and white photographs taken by members of the Camping and Caravanning Club’s Mountaineering Section, as it was then known.

“The Classic Sub 24 Hour Scottish Mountain Challenge” – a route that takes you over 23 Munros (peaks over 3000 feet), up a cumulative ascent of 8600 m and a total distance of 56 miles in Lochaber, Western Scotland. Rude not to, really. I was in bed by 10 pm and after an hour or […]

Glasgow or Edinburgh? Scotland’s two major cities are just an hour apart, but are quite different from each other. Yet for some reason people tend to pick one or the other to visit, so the Glasgow or Edinburgh question commonly comes up. Even I’m guilty of asking if Glasgow or Edinburgh is better, but I […]

50+ things Sarah will do before she turns 50

How do I try to summarise nearly a week driving around one of the most stunning countries in the world in just one blog entry?! I thought I’d tell you about it through 5 themes: views, weather, wildlife, food/drink and sport. Views I remember years ago being in an RAF-type helicopter simulator as I was […]

TGO Challenge 2019 – Part 1  It’s taken me a long time to sit down and start writing this. I haven’t stopped since I got back from Montrose a couple of weeks ago and I’ve almost avoided starting to write this down. I’m not sure when I made the decision to apply for TGO 2019 […]

We were due for a stomp. We’d heard that Sandwood Bay has the most gorgeous beach, which is a big claim in Northern Scotland, and that you can only reach it on foot, so it was an obvious choice for a leg stretch. We’d glanced over the reference in Lonely Planet, registered something about 4km […]

The West Highland Way is one of the most popular hiking destinations in Europe- a gorgeous, 152km stretch of moors, sheep, forests, and fog.  Last year I survived my first ever hike: a 4-day excursion on the Laugavegur trail in Iceland. It’s an intense and challenging journey of 55km, with lots of huge elevation changes and […]
