The Frank Bruce Sculpture Trail, Feshiebridge

Last weekend, we went away in the van to explore more of the Aviemore area. It’s somewhere we love because of the mountains, but we haven’t really done much of the valley walks. However, the weather last weekend lined up brilliantly with us wanting a slower weekend, with shorter walks (hopefully) between the showers. The […]

Route info: The Lochnagar Circuit

Keith made a few notes about the Lochnagar circuit, one of the biggest munro walks from the summer. We took two days to do it, so why not grab yourself a cuppa, probably a biscuit or two, (it’s quite a long read) get comfy and give it a read…. 1st day: So the plan was to […]

Our favourite outdoor experiences from around the world

Why you should visit Perthshire in Autumn

Perthshire is known as Big Tree Country and with good reason. The area covers more than 200,000 acres of woodland, has some of the oldest and tallest trees in the country and has some great trails for family walks. Needless to say, it’s a beautiful place to visit at any time of year, but it is […]

Route info: MacGregor’s Cave, near Kinloch Rannoch

We’ve just returned from a weekend away in the van around the Loch Rannoch area, somewhere we’ve been to many times before but there’s always little gems hidden away that we never can fit in for a short weekend. This time, we sought out the route to MacGregor’s Cave, a short walk through some woods […]

Munrobagging as a family: Why we do it

Scotland has recently been voted the most beautiful country in the world by readers of Rough Guides and it’s easy to see why. Rugged coastlines, craggy mountains, pristine beaches, beautiful glens and high mountain plateaus. What’s not to love? We moved to Perthshire just over 4 years ago and didn’t waste any time heading straight to the […]

an outdoors family mayar

Mayar & Driesh the hard way

Dreish and Mayar are considered a couple of the easier hills in the Munro list and are pretty local to us so both Stacey and myself have done them before, but our son had not done Dreish, as he said didn’t have the energy earlier in the year on a 2 day walk and wildcamp in […]

An Outdoors Family wildcamping

Summer family wildcamping

Today I’m feeling nostalgic and thinking back to our first family wildcamping trip. Before we had our son, Keith and I only really went wildcamping, never stayed on an official campsite or next to the car, preferring the tranquillity and peace that came with being in the middle on nowhere…. How different would it be with an […]
