Halò from Scotland

Deep breath … and wow!


I’m Dawn-Marie and this is my first ever blog and I really want to share my experience of exploring Scotland, my home country, with you!

Scotland is a very popular place to visit, but living here can also mean that I don’t get to explore my beautiful country as much as I would like.

“Why?” you ask. Well, work, family and the Scottish weather does take over your life.

You’ll have heard the saying “it rains all the time in Scotland”.

Aye … that could be true, four seasons in one day is becoming very popular here, but what an amazing experience. Who wants to be burnt toast all the time? Not me!

We do have some lovely weather too though and some of my posts and photos will show you what a magical, breathtaking place Scotland is.

I try to visit new places when I can and I hope you’ll enjoy my posts, a teeny wee snapshot of Scotland with my family.

I should also mention that writing is a new challenge for me. I used to love writing a diary when I was a teenager. Writing on paper back in the days was great therapy for getting it all out of your head!

Thank you so much for reading and remember to visit Scotland!

If I can help with anything that you’ve read on my blog send me a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you!

  1. I’m a newbie too – well to regular writing that I wish people to read. Inspired by our recent move to bonny Scotland. We absolutely love it here. I might be being blind but I can’t find a Facebook page for you…
    Happy blogging x

    1. Hi Melanie, glad to hear you love Scotland. I love writing about places I’ve visited, some many years ago though! I’m very much a beginner, but with time I should improve! I don’t have a Facebook page for my blog, just a personal one. I’m thinking of starting Instagram for my blog first to see how it goes. It’s more of a time thing to keep up with it all! Your website and photos are amazing! Perthshire is beautiful. I’m climbing Schiehallion in May and hope to take lots of photos! Keep in touch x


  2. Dear ~Dawn~Marie~
    I found your blog on the case, looking for location ‘Craigh to dun’. Now I know exactly where it is 🙂 Is the area is private? Because on street view I see the fence and sign ‘free range eggs’. You can go there without a problem? I hope that what I write is quite clear to You.

    1. Hi Eva,

      Sorry, I don’t know what the case is?

      We walked up to the location with no issues. I’m not sure if we should have been there though as it is private property. We didn’t stay long because of the storm.

      There are no standing stones there unfortunately, it was just the location they filmed. There are so many to see across Scotland!



  3. Hi, I’m Eva from Poland.. Thanks so much for showing the Scottish views, especially thank you for placing photos of the location of the Outlander series. I have long been caught in your country. I hope that someday I can visit all these places, which has set itself. But first I need to improve my English in speech and in writing unless too.

      I loved visiting one of the Outlander filming locations, it was so beautiful. I hope to visit more locations soon.

      I hope you can visit Scotland one day. You should look at the Visit Scotland website: http://www.visitscotland.com
