Holly and Tara are two bloggers I’ve been absolutely loving lately!
Holly (witchcake.co.uk) is a brilliant writer and blogs about sex, fantasy, lifestyle and more. Anyone who is as open as her gets a massive thumbs up from me.

I also love Tara (cattitudeandco.uk) because of how open she is and the fact she writes about periods, vaginas and feminism (amongst other things!).

Both girls are extremely unique and sooo interesting – definitely check them out!

To see what else I’ve enjoyed throughout February, here’s my new youtube video!

Creep Week #3! – Hike Chats and Creepy Mountain People

During my 2 weeks off from work, I walked the Stank Glen route in Callander and also along Loch Katrine in Aberfoyle. I filmed both of the walks (video below) but I thought I would share the photos!

The Stank Glen loop starts at one of the Ben Ledi routes, is 9km long, has brilliant paths and great views over Loch Lubnaig!

Loch Lubnaig

3 days after Stank Glen, my boyfriend and I set out to do Primrose Hill in Aberfoyle but when we arrived, I couldn’t be bothered, ha! We decided on a walk along Loch Katrine, but ended up doing 14 miles altogether! Despite the sore legs, it was worth it for these views.

Sunny, Snowy Scotland

PicMonkey Collage

Scottish weather is a complete mystery. Sun can’t be guaranteed in summer and snow can’t be guaranteed in winter; you just never know what it’s going to be like outside. Deciding what to wear when heading out can be problematic – we can’t always rely on the weather forecast!

Yesterday, the weather forecast said it was to be dry and sunny, so I jumped on the chance of a drive to Arrochar for a small hill walk. When I got there, it was pissing down. Typical.
(Tip for walking in Scotland: Always bring waterproofs!)
Thankfully, it dried up later on and it ended up being perfect walking weather!

Speaking of being prepared for the weather, in January, I was not prepared for the snow. Luckily, it only lasted for 2 days (thank GOD) and on one of the days, I enjoyed a stroll in Balloch Park, watching everyone sledging while pelting my boyfriend with snowballs.

The vlog from both of these days will be linked at the end of this post!

Here are the rest of the photos!

Glen Loin and Coiregrograin Circuit

My boyfriend Fraser and I recently walked the Glen Loin and Coiregrograin Circuit, Arrochar in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. We managed 12 miles in 5 hours, (it’s an 11 mile loop, but we took a wrong turn at one point!) and managed to escape the rain. It was enjoyable, but it showed me just how long it’s been since I’ve hiked – my legs were killing me!

You can see the walk in my new youtube video, which includes footage of us hitting a bog and almost getting stuck; story of my life.

Here are some photos from the day:
