It’s a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and, if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no telling where you might get swept off to. J.R.R. Tolkien
These are my writings and photos from my travels out and about around the United Kingdom and beyond.
Getting back into hill walking following a break by tackling the Criffel, near Dumfries. It was a lot harder than we thought it'd be!
The annual Moffat sheep races celebrate the town's sheep farming and centuries old woollen industry. The event is made possible thanks to local shepherds who train their flocks all year for this event!
Barn Owl Photography Day organised by the Barn Owl Centre, a UK charity for the rescue and rehabilitation of owls and birds of prey.
Time for a well earned holiday and a trip to Scotland to visit my brother in law at his new house visiting some of the local sights in an area of Scotland which I have not explored before.
It's that time of year again when the snow falls, schools close and big kids come out to play... This time we venture out in the Land Rover to exploring Wiltshire and Somerset in the snow
Holiday time and once again, with myself, Rob and Heather heading off to Scotland for a mini road trip adventure in the Highlands!
On a bright sunny Sunday afternoon, I headed over to Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire with my new camera to see a Tudor falconry day display in the Abbey grounds.
It has been a while since I've been out for a walk, but now I'm self-employed I've got more time to do the things I like, such as walking in the country. Rob and I head off to a frozen Crook Peak, and this time there is a new member of the duo...
Way back, while sat in a pub drinking scrumpy, me and my brother-in-law Rob came up with a hair-brained plan to do a motorbike tour around Scotland. We decided on early October to avoid the midges, caravans and tourists and with two weeks to go, we set about getting the actual plan in motion.
In a sudden and unexpected change to the day's planned events, my brother in law and myself headed down to Brean and did a spot of fishing off Brean Down.
