#buckfastpacking trail and campvibes. Yesterday we did almost 100km, mostly road. Oh..and we crashed the Scottish open golf tournament, opened the gates with plyers and casually rolled through the area 😀😀😀 Today we skipped breakfast and startet riding on the trail again. Now lunch and then we turn left from the coast and head to the mountains. #116packing #116bikeshop #keliclothing #intergalacticsurlybikes #bikepacking #scotland #centralbelter
The Palace of Holyroodhouse commonly referred to as Holyrood Palace, is the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland, Queen Elizabeth II. Located at the bottom of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, at the opposite end to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace has served as the principal residence of the Kings and Queens of Scots since the 16th century, and is a setting for state occasions and official entertaining. #architecture #monarch #edinburgh #wheninedinburgh #scotland #scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 #wheninscotland #igdaily

Every time I stand on this hillside I am moved to worship by the beauty and peacefulness of this place. A heavy shroud of mist blanketed the Firth this morning, but as I stood silently listening to the soft patter of raindrops splashing off the oak trees behind me and the song of the sea rise up the hill before me I was reminded of how good it is to praise Him in the sunshine and in the rain. #walking #walkofftheweight #walkscotland #walkingpantsonly #trailwalking #moray #coastaltrail #scotland #scotlandrising #fitnessgoals #fitnessroutine #fattofit #fattofitjourney #curvygirlfitness #curvygirl #obesetobeast #obesity #obesetofit #fightobesity #funeralformyfat #bootygains #everydayislegday #lapasa #buckie #findochty #portessie #morayfirth #northsea

The Kelpies sculptures [3 of 3] Legend has it shapeshifting water spirits would lure lost children to various bodies of water to drown them. Idk why they built something of that- oh okay maybe it's like a Dumb Ways to Die advertisement/monument, Scottish version. Cheers to keeping kids scared of wandering near water for centuries. . And then Amanda went to orh it's bisai. . This was maybe one of...less than a couple dozen monuments we saw that doesn't have anything to do with war or death or matyrs. They reaaally love their tragic ancestors and matyrs. . #kelpie #thekelpies #sculpture #monument #scotland #uk #unitedkingdom #vacay #gradtrip #ITWASHUGE #MASSIVE #REALLYBIG

“This is a city of shifting light, of changing skies, of sudden vistas. A city so beautiful it breaks the heart again and again.” - Alexander McCall Smith. I love this shot. Took a handful of photos to get just the right one, but it was worth it 📷 😎! #edinburgh #scotland #uk #latergram #travel #travelphotography
I still buzzing about the weekend at @grinduro Scotland 🤟🏼😊 It has been a weekend that has exceeded every single expectation that I could have had. We could have looked at it as a weekend camping in the rain and being bitten by midges. Anyone fancies that? Probably not! 😆 But instead we knew that it was an adventure that is was worth the trip. Against all the odds we had a glorious weather, the facilities in the high school building where we were camping were a 10 stars, midges under control (or nearly 😂), people arriving from everywhere around the world, lots of super cool looking bearded guys and tattoos 😎👌🏼, ages from very young to never too old, bike builders showing their creations, lots of people in the cycling industry with a similar view of a friendly cycling world and one thing that I could find in common with everyone, we were all having the biggest smiles all day long, we were cheering on each other without even knowing our names, the feed stations were offering from the traditional ice cream from the Isle of Arran to a cheeky G&T to give a bit of a sparkle to the water bottle 😆 I could keep going on and on about all the good things that I have lived this weekend but I will keep it short and I will say that it had been the best cycling event that I have ever done. Amazing the good vibe from everyone in the event and special shout out to all the women braving those technical trails, LEGENDS!!! 💪🏼 See you there next year! . . . @grinduro @girocycling #offroadnation #grinduro #grinduroscotland offroading #gravelbike #isleofarran #crossisboss #crossiscoming #cyclingadventures #cycletouring #packlighttravelfar #bikepacking #worldbybike #cycletour #scotland #adventure_time #livemoreworryless #offroadnation #offroadcycling #cyclingculture #ridelots #exploremore #fromwhereiride #cyclocross #cyclingaddict #beautyofcycling
The first fortification at Thurso was raised by the Norwegians probably in the form of an earth and timber structure but little is known about it other than a record dated 1157. The Norwegians dominated the north and west coasts of Scotland until the mid-13century and Thurso, which was centrally located on the route from Norway to the Western isles, was chosen as a key residence to serve the Earls of Orkney and Caithness. ▫️ By the 17th century vast swathes of Caithness and Sutherland were under the control of the powerful Sinclair family. Around 1660 the 6th Earl of Caithness started work on a new castle. Work was overseen by Donald Ross and became George's primary residence. He was an important magnate in northern Scotland but found himself embroiled in a bitter land dispute with the Campbells of Glenorchy. Attempts to resolve the issue through the courts were followed by a decision by the King in favour of the Campbells. This prompted George Sinclair to mount a guerrilla campaign against his rivals. ▫️ Thurso castle, along with other Sinclair properties were seized by the Campbells but then attacked and badly damaged by George's men. The dispute was eventually resolved following intervention by James, Duke of York (later James VII and II) and thereafter Thurso was repaired. ▫️ The castle was substantially rebuilt in 1872 by Sir Tollemache Sinclair. The new structure took the form of a Scottish Baronial Gothic mansion. Large swathes of the 17th century castle were either demolished or incorporated into the new structure. The build quality of the new mansion was poor however and in 1952 much of the structure was demolished for safety reasons leaving just the sections visible today. ▫️ Image by @venture_north ———————————— #scottish #lovescotland #scotland #historicscotland #visitscotland #love_scotland #travelinggram #nc500 #thisisscotland #lifeofadventure #master_shots #ig_worldclub #igersscotland #goexplore #castle #discoverglobe #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #history #castlesofscotland #scotlandsbeauty #passionpassport #modernoutdoors #greatnorthcollective #travelblogger #abandonedplaces #abandoned_addiction #northcoast #northeast #scottishhighlands

Murray loves a bench! 🐕🌿
A leisurely drive back from Mull to the homeland allowed for several stops at little forests along the way. A wonderful midge repellent it’s somewhat ironic I got eaten alive collecting this... What will I use it for? A gruit of course! #foraging #beer #bogmyrtle

Let’s talk writing retreats! Have you ever taken one? How much writing do you actually plan to accomplish? What are your must-haves when you pack? How do you set goals for yourself to accomplish during the trip? How far away do you actually need to get from your own home for it to be an effective retreat? . I have a retreat planned for later this week though it isn’t quite as far afield as these pictures from my somewhat recent travels! (1. isle of Skye, Scotland; 2. Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh; 3 and 4: Cape Lookout State Park, Oregon.) . I’m going to be cutting up my manuscript (literally) and getting everything I’ve written during #campnanowrimo into a cohesive draft. I’ll also be doing some research and world building in between trying a new cocktail bar and reading by the pool 😊 . I’d love to hear about your experience with writing retreats; let me know in the comments! #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writingretreat #scotland #edinburgh #skye #oregon #writingcommunity #writerscommunity

@walkers_crisps - Salt & Vinegar (English in comment) När man stoppas in chipset i munnen finns det en liten kort stund där man tror att det inte ska smaka mycket. Direkt kommer chipsen och visar på det motsatta. Syran smäller på hårt och är riktigt god. Potatissmaken finns där, lite smak av oljan finns där, saltet är lite frånvarande men finns där. Själva chipsen är tunna, krispiga och bra i storleken! Svag som jag är för S&V så tycker jag dessa vääääääldigt goda! Som jämförelse kan man ta estrellas S&V. 4,5/5 chips! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👉🏼. . . . . . #chipsmannen #chips #chipsärmat #saltandvinegar #saltochvinäger #walkers #scotland #skotland #matärchips #chipsporr #chipsporn #chipsreview #chipsrecension #crisps #crispy #foodgram #foodporn #foodreview #instachips #foodpic #recension #instafoodie #instafood #smak #taste

The european shag🇬🇧 looks like a black bird. In fact, the plumage is largely deep bronze green. Each feather of the upper wings has a subtle black edge. That gives the bird a 'scaly' appearance. 🇳🇱Kuifaalscholver. . . . #scotland #naturephotography #tb #naturelover #ootd #wanderer #hiking #animallovers #loveit #wanderlust #naturelovers #nature #netherlands #wildlife #wildlifephotography #animals #cool #wilderness #explore #canon #instagood #birds #bird #wanderlust #tbt #animal #beautiful #pretty #nofilter #travel #love
