Our Scotland Trip – Spring 2017

Scotland Trip – Spring 2017 This trip in spring 2017, took us up the east coast of Scotland, up and across to the Orkneys, then along the Scottish North Coast.

Homeward Bound

Were sorry we’ve put more effort into living our dream, than we have into writing up the stories of our adventures. We’re sorry we’ve been so lazy and hedonistic! It’s actually been about eight weeks since we posted our last blog post, when we were on the Orkney Isles. Since then we’ve travelled right across the North Coast of Scotland, down the West Coast, and across to the beautiful Outer Hebrides – “The Western Isles”. […]
