Future explorations

Lists are good as it helps me remember what I would like to accomplish. Usually having a plan helps motivate me to just do it.

What I do know for sure is that I love exploring and sharing Scotland with you all. Remember you can also follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube where I also post photos and videos.

Plan to explore in 2019

I still have a few places from my 2018 list that I haven’t visited yet. Last year I slowed down a little, so I need to get back out there.

I know I’ll be visiting the Isle of Arran again this year and more of Ayrshire. I will try my best to show you new places too.

This was me at Loch Lomond on 1 January 2019. The most rewarding start to a new year 💙
