Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, but also discuss history, folklore and films and books. Hope you have a nice stay!

Returned from the Highlands of Scotland...

Returned from the Highlands of Scotland...

This is Glen Fender, near Blair Atholl - the view from the cottage I just spent the last week in up in the Perthshire Highlands of Scotland.  It's rural and not isolated - there was a tiny hamlet and pub just a couple miles down the single track lane -- but it was a good spot for ranging near the Cairngorms and surrounds -- and we learned that what we really want is the West Highlands.  But that's another trip.

But I'll take this view any day.  It was rainy most of the time but we made the best of it.  This was the one single sunset in the 10 day holiday that we got without a ton of cloud.

I've got a lot to share over the next couple of weeks.  Expect tales of Highland clans, William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and the Rising.  But we did stay for two days in the Lake District as well, and we jammed packed those days full of wonderful stuff.

This is just a heads up for the oncoming activity and that I'm back!  Though to be honest I'm always on twitter and instagram, especially when I travel. ;)
