Travels with a Kilt in 2016…..

 

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

2016 kicks off with a Scotlanders jaunt to Arran where we’ll be discussing the digital ventures for the year ahead with our friends at Calmac.

I’m having a bit of a once-in-a-lifer this February/March when my kilt gets packed up for a first trip to New Zealand. That promises to bring with it a story or two….

Back at home, 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? Weather permitting, I’ll also be getting back over to a Western Isle or two.

 

Spring

The Scotlanders will be in attendance at the annual VisitScotland Expo in the capital to see what the chat from the industry is like for the season ahead.

Speyside – back for more whisky joy in the north east and I’ll be taking in a distillery or three at the very least.

Argyll – first hike of the year will be Ben Arthur, The Cobbler, as part of my exploration of Argyll. Having taken on the Cowal Peninsula last year, I’ll be taking a closer look at its Kintyre neighbour.

 

travels with a kiltSummer

An epic road trip to the Northern Highlands is due and an endless amount of natural highlights along the way is a guarantee.

Skye is on the agenda in May. Brace for photos.

Orkney – Packed with ancient wonders and offering a very different island experience to my western regulars, this is one in the diary for June.

A wander down to under-hyped Dumfries and Galloway is also planned. Details to follow.

Autumn

Well, Perthshire. It’d be rude not to.

A return trip to the Isle of Arran for a more detailed nosey. Offering a bit of everything, I’m hoping to see the island at its best under some glorious autumn colours.
