Hello from Scotland

Hello!

I’m Dawn-Marie and I live on the south-west coast of Scotland in beautiful Ayrshire.

Scotland is a very popular place to visit, but living here can 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 can 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.

Deep breath … and wow!

We do have some lovely weather too though, honest! I want to share with you what a magical, breathtaking place Scotland is.

I try to visit new places when I can. I love going somewhere I’ve never been before, sometimes that can be close to home!

I hope you enjoy my photos and stories, a teeny wee snapshot of Scotland with my family.

I should also mention that writing my blog started out as a whole new challenge for me. I’m not a trained writer but something inside me wanted to give it a go.

I remember writing a diary when I was a teenager, a long time ago … Writing on paper back in the days was great therapy for getting everything out of my head! I also loved to write poems and stories.

Photography is also my passion, mostly all my own work apart from the photos I’m in of course. Sometimes my husband might capture a better photo than me so I might use it too.

I hope my stories inspire you to get outdoors, explore what’s on your doorstep and beyond. Don’t forget to visit Scotland!

Thank you so much for reading.

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!

      Thanks
      Dawn-Marie

      1. All right. I mean the place where the stones is set to shoot scenes. I found them thanks to your guidance.

  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.
