Welcome! This site has photos and stories from some of our trips in the great outdoors. That includes rock and ice climbing, camping, sea-kayaking, hiking and lots of sheep farming as well - in both our country of Scotland and on trips afar. We stay in the village of Fortrose, Scotland near to the highlands, home of some great mountains, coastal and island scenery. We get out into the mountains most weekends or more but escape from the variable weather to sunnier climates abroad whenever we can!
