Great weather this last Sunday.     more…
Orcadilucence

Orcadilucence

That’s a first! I was after these noctilucent clouds for a while and to be honest I was dropping the idea of seeing them from Orkney. The weather here is hardly predictable and summer so far has not been favourable to islanders’ NLC hunters. Last Friday made no exception: rainy and foggy all day long. […] more…
Ben Venue

Ben Venue

Another great outdoor day. I spotted Ben Venue from Ben A’an, which seemed to be a mountain of character to me. This is the Loch Katrine’s area in the Trossarchs, so you cannot be wrong really if you’re after stunning views. The walk description can be found on Walkhighlands. more…
Orcadia Borealis

Orcadia Borealis

Hm. Wide topic! February 2014 in Orkney was quite a month. Alive when night has come, and ghost the day. You do not meet with Lady Aurora easily at N59ยบ and you’re often left with a shy touch of green only. But witnessing a bright and long tourmaline-like pillar in the sky makes you trying […] more…
Ross of Mull

Ross of Mull

Ross of Mull is such a beautiful yet deserted place, like many more in Scotland. The plan was to take Magda to Gigha but as often the plan has been changed at the last minute. more…
Afterwork

Afterwork

Simple stuff in Edinburgh, follow me. A nice bike ride along Union canal in Edinburgh, games of pool at Diane’s on Morrison St. and diner at Haymarket pub. That’s it. more…
Ben Lomond

Ben Lomond

1st munro for Amy! Great outdoor day with Nancy, Christian & Amy (few months old) and Lukasz. Ben Lomond is a popular walk and offers fine views all way long. A true taste of summer could be felt at the shore while winter was dominating on top. more…
Orkney

Orkney

1st visit to Orkney with Amandine. The plan was to celebrate our birthdays under the northern light, which we did! Tricky bet since February’s weather in Orkney is known for its usual harshness. The weather was actually clement, allowing us to wander around Orcadian’s iconic and wild places. The trip has been punctuated with a […] more…
Bruar Loop, Perthshire

Bruar Loop, Perthshire

The Perthshire is full of hilly places, often synonym of grand days should you be lucky enough to have the Sun accompanying you. Middle of Autumn and we could feel that winter was already on its way : first snowflakes already covered the top of the hills. This transitional time of the year gives a […] more…
Iona

Iona

This weekend trip completed my previous trip to the Inner Hebrides. The weekend immediately after. You just can’t get enough of the peace, calm and beauty found on these paradises. Iona is a gem, full of history, with magnificent clear seas all around. more…
