England is now better known for vibrant cities with great nightlife and attractions, contrasted with green and pleasant countryside. It's said that Ireland, once visited, is never forgotten; the landscape has a mythic resonance, the country's history is almost tangible, and its people seem put on earth expressly to restore faith in humanity. Wales is just what you picture it to be: rolling moorlands, tongue-twisting place names, Rugby Union... But also fantastic walking, cycling, fishing, water and adventure sports as well as some fine festivals. Scotland's' people are feisty, opinionated and fiercely loyal. The countryside is a wild, beautiful tumble of raw mountain peaks and deep glassy lakes.

Over Hill and by Sheep

Tue, 10 Apr 2018 | By shire_girl | Views [33]

From Scotland I journeyed to what is probably one of the most beautiful sections of England, the Cotswolds, or "sheep hills". Great former wealth was brought to this area during the wool trade which I believe carried through the late 1800s. When wool ... Read more >

Findhorn

Tue, 10 Apr 2018 | By shire_girl | Views [30]

I won't be the first to say that time is an odd thing. The days at Findhorn were long, but enjoyable, and yet so soon after arriving it was time to leave again. I was showed to my shared cottage by one of Eileen Caddy's son's, who spent some of his childhood ... Read more >

Old Friends and New

Fri, 6 Apr 2018 | By shire_girl | Views [32]

Since I'd been forced to take the early bus from the Isle of Arran (7 am) due to the road work I arrived in Glasgow about 4 hours before my bus was scheduled to head north. Hopefully I approached the ticket counter and asked if I could swap my mid afternoon ... Read more >

By way of Ferry

Thu, 5 Apr 2018 | By shire_girl | Views [26]

From a lovely attic bedroom in Lochranza I overlooked the harbor with the lights glimmering out from the houses across the water at night, and the old castle somewhere down on the spit of land in the middle. To reach the Isle of Arran you must take about ... Read more >

Back Again

Fri, 30 Mar 2018 | By shire_girl | Views [34]

I'm back again across the pond, this time with a little more familiarity, but still plenty of opportunity to add to the "do this differently next time" list. I'd say 1 in 3 people still smoke, they still have a great accent, the underground is now somewhat ... Read more >

Money Saving Hacks For Travelling

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 | By chrissilb | Views [60]

It’s great to travel, or, so I think so. But I’d like to believe that most people have a little wanderlust in them. Experiencing amazing and famous sights, immersing yourself in other cultures – it’s great! And you can always ... Read more >

Mountain Biking in Scotland

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 | By chrissilb | Views [50]

I’ve always been fond of bikes but have been quite conservative in how I enjoyed them. I was never one to cycle on the main road when I was younger, instead, taking my bicycle to national parks or around my street. This all changed when Glasgow ... Read more >
