Ben A’an – The Trossachs

After a failed venture into printed clothing and struggling to find motivation to do anything, I finally dragged myself out the house this earlier this week. I decided to gauge my fitness by hiking up Ben A’an.

Abandoned In Australia

As the title suggests, we feel abandoned in Australia. Our flights have been cancelled, our rescheduled flights have been cancelled and no-one is answering our calls.​

The Cage Of Death

What do you do when your homeward flight gets cancelled? Jump in the “Cage of Death” at Crocosaurus Cove probably isn’t the answer but it’s what we done. I’ve been buzzing to do this since I found out it was a thing.

Exploring Fitzroy Island

On Thursday, it was our last full day in Cairns. So, we decided to spend it exploring Fitzroy Island. It’s somewhere we had never been before.

Scenic Flights & Barrier Reefs

‘Scenic Flights & Barrier Reefs’ is all about another iconic location we’ve revisited. Can you guess which one? Yep, the Great Barrier Reef. I mean why would we not go back?

Return to Whitsundays

Yesterday, we made our return to Whitsundays. Last time we were there, we got caught in a cyclone. This time turned out a bit different.

Ben Nevis, Grampian Mountains

Ben Nevis is the highest mountain, not only in Scotland but in the entire United Kingdom and at the weekend, I finally bagged it. It was hands down one of the more difficult Munros that I’ve done.

Ben More – First Attempt

Despite the torrential rain, Davie and I made an attempt to climb Ben More. Definitely not the nicest of days to do it. I’ll not lie and tell you that we reached the summit, we did not. We barely made it a third of the way up.

Down the A9 From Dornoch

Part 2 of our road trip, down the A9 from Dornoch. I was going to do a post of Dornoch but we never really spent a lot of time there. There was plenty of history to be soaked up along the way.

The Scenic Route To Dornoch

What an epic weekend, I spent Saturday climbing Buachaille Etive Mor and on Sunday I took the scenic route to Dornoch. So of course, instead of driving straight there and back, we decided to make a few pit stops along the way.

Buachaille Etive Mor, Glen Etive (Stob Dearg)

Buachaille Etive Mor ridge is hands down my favourite mountain. Probably the most iconic and most photographed mountains in Scotland. It featured in the James Bond film, Skyfall, as Bond makes his way to North. I  attempted it once (after ‘The Beast from the East’ last year – not a wise move) and only reached the saddle but yesterday, I finally made it to the summit.

Ben Lomond – Loch Lomond and The Trossachs

Ben Lomond was my first Munro, I enjoyed it that much I actually done it a second time! Well that and the first time it was bucketing down and I seen hee-haw. Since I’ve taken a weekend off from climbing hills, I thought I’d write about this beauty.
