My 2013 travel roundup

By | December 18th, 2013|Travel|

Not bad for an office bod.  Despite spending a large portion of my year sitting at a desk in a freezing cold west London office block, travel over the past 12 months has been good.  Very good in fact! At the risk of sounding a little like a Dbag, here's a few travel numbers I [...]

Claigan Coral Beach – The Isle of Skye

By | December 13th, 2013|Photographic Inspiration, Scotland|

A treasure of a beach located in a slightly unsuspecting location, the Claigan coral beach is a must visit for anyone spending a few days on the Isle of Skye. With nothing more than a few vague location notes scribbled down on a crumpled sheet of paper my friends and I set out from our [...]

So you have made it through the bitter cold of winter.  Spring is in the air, you've hopefully paid off the Christmas credit card bill(s) and now you've told yourself that you deserve a little treat, a wee getaway if you will.  Well, may I suggest to you the month of March for an early [...]

Eilean Donan Castle

By | June 20th, 2013|Scotland|

Eilean Donan Castle is an iconic Scottish landmark.  Located on a small island in Loch Duich the castle can be reached via an impressive stone bridge which links from the castle back to the mainland and visitors centre.  It is said to be the most photographed castle in Scotland, its not hard to understand why  ... you'll get [...]

The Glenfinnan Viaduct and the other train that goes to Hogwarts

By | April 11th, 2013|Scotland|

The Glenfinnan Viaduct shows the way to Hogwarts.  This iconic stretch of Scottish Railway is 100% real, no CG effect here, and ff the train track the Hogwarts Express runs along is real, surely Hogwarts is real no? I'm not sure I should admit this at 28 years of age, but this isnt the first [...]

Snowboarding in Scotland – Glencoe ski resort

By | April 5th, 2013|Scotland, Snowboarding|

Snowboarding in Scotland is possible in a number of places. On a recent holiday to Scotland (an epic roadtrip I might add), I was lucky enough to get an afternoons boarding in at one of Scotland's six main snow resorts. Granted it was quite what I was used to in terms of ski resorts (not that I have extensive [...]

The Northern Lights – Green skies over Reykjavik on St Patrick’s Day

By | April 3rd, 2013|Iceland|

The Northern Lights are probably what you would call a bucket list item, well at least I would.  Some time again I outlined my two stage plan in an attempt to see the aurora borealis, but owing to cloud cover stage one in Scotland proved a disappointing fail.  To be fair, Scotland was always a long shot.  I'd [...]

The Faerie Glen – Where Skye meets Hollywood

By | March 20th, 2013|Scotland|

The Faerie Glen upon entry does seem a sort of magical place.  A simple journey down a dirt track takes you from the western coastline of the Isle of Skye into a land that wouldn't look out of place in a children's fairytale.  A land where mystical creatures dwell and wield supernatural powers.  Such is the look and [...]
