So………a blog. What a unique idea 🙂
I suppose I should explain why. Basically, I love to travel. Seeing breathtaking places, eating outrageously good food (ok, sometimes bad, but good bad), people watching, being transfixed by stupidly talented musicians, soaking up atmosphere, smells, sun, wind, snow, rain, discovering places that seem like nobody else has ever been there before. I also love to procrastinate. I don’t know why it has never before occurred to me to write a blog- my perfect outlet.
What makes this different from other blogs then? Well, most travelly type blogs are about far off exotic lands of the unknown. Not me. Luckily I am totally and utterly in love with my own back yard, Scotland. Which is just as well, as although I do also love to don my passport and head for distant shores, the chance doesn’t come up quite as often as I would like. So, rather that write as a tourist discovering another country, I am here to tell you all about the secrets of Scotland from the inside out.
Now for the public health warning, this blog will feature a lot of food. A lot. It will also feature cocktails and whisky and music and more food, the great outdoors, hills, glens, beaches, woods, islands, sneaky hidden foody gems, highland games, ceilidhs, more food, remote destination, off the beaten track pubs and slick city bars and eateries….and places that deep fry stuff. Basically anything I judge to be Scotland’s finest. In particular, it’s about promoting what’s local- local produce, local restaurants, local recipes, local bands, local festivals, local sights….From time to time I will stray and report back on what I discover outside Scotland but for the most part, you get the idea.
I’m a lucky lassie to have an abundance of brilliant stuff on my doorstep.
