Father of the National Parks

There are some great long distance walks in Scotland the most famous being the West Highland Way from Glasgow ( Milganvie) to Ft William through some amazing scenery. This was extended to Inverness some years ago under the Great Glen Way banner,Nessie spotting is an added extra!


The Fife Coastal Path has proven popular over the last ten years, I particularly like Crail to St Andrews, the approach to The Old Grey Toon is wonderful. FCP goes right passed the door at Caiplie, using the 95 bus you can do loads of great walking from the house as the bus route runs parallel to the path along the coast, so you are never more than a mile from the bus route for getting home then starting off again in the same place.

view to St Andrews


A new path has arrived marking the 100th anniversary of the conservationist John Muirs death, the John Muir Way opened in April. The 134-mile-long trail runs coast-to-coast from Muir's hometown of Dunbar all the way to Loch Lomond, passing by castles, hills and canals along the way. Walking the length of the Way will take eight to 12 days (or four to six by bike). You could of course turn North on TWHW at Loch Lomond and on to brave!


More great reasons to visit/stay in Scotland this year coming soon.........

We are all guilty from time to time of thinking that our own little world and life is the centre of the universe right? Surely this year in Scotland we are justified to feel like we really are?

In a series of blogs we will explore 10tatsic events and activities that should attract you to Scotland or make sure you get out and make the most of your country.

2014 is a Homecoming Year - the country welcomes home it's diasopora or just folk who like Scotland. This programme itself brings together a vast array of brilliant events under a number of themes.

What looks to be a real gem is the Tummel and Tay Festival under the whisky theme. This runs in late May across Highland Perthshire: The Birks Cinema, Birnam Arts and Pitlochry Festival Theatre are promoting a shared programme of whisky themed content. They are supported by the local distilleries.......
