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.

    One of three Pallas’s cat kittens born in captivity at the Highland Wildlife Park in Scotland.
The cats are normally found in the high plateaus and mountains of central Asia, from Iran to western China and Mongolia.  Oh and surprise surprise, they’re a threatened species because of change in agricultural practices and fur trapping.
These fluffballs are the first Pallas’s Cats to be born at the wildlife park near Kingussie in the Scottish Highlands.  They’re nine weeks old and are now starting to explore their enclosure.
Awwwwww.
