Travels with a Kilt in 2017…..

 

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

2017 will kick off with a January visit to Burns land in Dumfries and Galloway. The Bard’s hometown for much of his short life, there’s no end of Burns-related attractions and there’s no better place to spend Burns Night than the south west.

Back in Central Scotland, there’s going to be a winter’s focus on whisky. Well, the weather has been all over the shop so best to back one of life’s little gurantees eh?

 

Spring

Aberdeenshire – I need to spend more time up in the north east as I’m too often distracted by the whisky distilleries and gravitate in a zombie like fashion to Speyside. But no more. Expect some castle hunting.

Argyll – I spent a fair amount of time in these glorious parts anyway but I’m planning on delving deeper this year. The road to Campbeltown (think gin and whisky) and Kilmartin Glen are very much on the cards.

An epic road trip to the Northern Highlands is due and an endless amount of natural highlights along the way is a guarantee. Glen Coe at least half a dozen times is a given too.

Yet another return to the glorous Isle of Harris is planned.

Shetland – there’s a big question mark over this one but I’d love to be getting myself up to these parts having explored Orkney so successfully last year. Here’s hoping I can pull this one off!

The Borders is likely to be seeing more of me once again as well….

 

Autumn

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

A return trip to the Isle of Arran for a more detailed nosey. I never get enough time on this most accessible of islands and I need to put that right at some point this year.
