Travels with a Kilt in 2018…..

 

After a busy 2017 where I targeted the likes of Shetland, Argyll, Glasgow and Arran to name but a few, 2018 promises lots more adventures on the road. It’s early days and this list won’t be getting any smaller but here’s what’s lined up for the year ahead so far.

Winter

My Glasgow focus from the end of 2017 will spill into the new year as I delve deeply into my home city. From my neighbourhood of the west end to the cultural attractions that make Glasgow so rich, I have much to look forward to!

Walking in the Angus Glens will also feature as I look to dodge the showers and see if I can blow out the cobwebs. This vast wilderness to the north of Dundee gets precious little attention so I’ll see what I can do about that.

Spring

The Cairngorms is hopefully going to be a feature of my work as the tourism season starts to gather momentum. Massive and challenging peaks await, as does the odd cultural and historical gem.

It’s been almost 4 years since my last trip to the Isle of Mull so I’m definitely feeling that. Iona and Staffa are convenient companions in the Inner Hebrides.

An overdue wander around the Ardnamurchan Peninsula is calling too…

An epic road trip to the Northern Highlands is due and an endless amount of natural highlights along the way is a guarantee. I’ve not explored Sutherland nearly enough and I’ll be looking to tick off several peaks.

Glen Coe at least half a dozen times is a given.

Ideally my annual pilgrimage to the Outer Hebrides will sneak in as well.

Autumn

Well, Perthshire. It’d be rude not to. Nowhere can match these parts in an autumnal glow.

Second only to Perthshire, Southern Scotland will be getting another visit when the empty expanse of untouched landscapes come to life at this time of year.
