About this site

The environment, Nature and beauty from a Scottish perspective.

Knowledge is power......but beyond that I don't have a particular agenda to push here. I don't necessarily have answers to the questions our environment is demanding of us.....but I do have the desire to get more people talking about environmental issues even if we don't all see eye to eye.

Problems are unlikely to be addressed let alone resolved unless folk know what is going on around them. And to that end, information & debate are ultimately better than ignorance or sticking our heads in the sand.

PLUS....it's a beautiful, awe-inspiring and sometimes terrifying planet. Put some time aside to marvel at it.

Beinn a’ Ghlo - March 2004
Another vintage 35mm photo of a favourite hill, one I climb on the same weekend every year.Beinn a’ Ghlo, near Blair Atholl, was actually the first big hill I climbed after moving to Scotland in 2003. The wide open space, large herds of deer and rugged beauty of it all was completely unlike what I’d become accustomed to in Wales. It felt like I’d finally found what I was looking for…….unlike Bono.I now visit Beinn a’ Ghlo every year on or around the same weekend in March. I call it my ‘anniversary walk’, a way of reminding myself way I moved here in the first place; paying my respects to this landscape, not taking it for granted and celebrating moving to Scotland.Ten visits over ten years so far. A beautiful, beautiful hill.
