Scottish Highland Road trip

Spent the weekend in meetings in Scotland, looking for new venues to visit and walks. Travelling was easier this time,there was a lot less to carry. Just my cargo bag with my rucksack folded in half and stuffed inside,some clothes, my bandanas and everything I stood in. I had to make my mind up, not a easy choice having such a large selection of bandanas to choose from ,So I stuck to my polka dot navy blue stripped ones.

No tent ? I here you ask ,I was kindly put up by a wonderful couple who kept me fed with the most delicious meals and warm hospitality. I am for ever grateful,check out the Crask Inn in Sutherland.

The beast was given a rest. Mind you, the hills were a lot harder to climb with a hatchback. Not enough power,but there's a real difference between a diesel workhorse and a unleaded go cart you can't kip in ( not enough leg room).

Headed to Torridon for a jaught, stayed over night. It's always great to walk along the coast line, the weather was superb. Not too hot or cold, perfect ,I got indoors just as dusk was falling. No need for head torches and walking in the dark.

Took some coal in and got the stove going (didn't need my gas stove in the end). A welcome relief to be able to dry off my damp clothes and get cleaned up and put on some dry warm stuff. Dinner was Stag chilli and rice, I struggled to finish it.

There was a full moon, I could see bats fluttering about in the dusk and the sea was so peaceful and calm.

Slept well and rose early the next day. I always do after a long days travelling and walk. It seemed funny having chicken soup for breakfast, but it was either eat it or leave it. Boy it tasted good with the left over naan bread. The porridge was easier to carry out. Tided up and left, the scenery was beautiful, clear blue skies, you could see all the Hebrides.

Hello Lulworth Cove, Dorset

The sun was on our side. We took a mad trip to the coast to soak up some rays and breathe some sea air. Starting our journey in the early hours, we miss the traffic ,managing to get to Dorset without stress.

We pulled up safely and opened up the tailgate for breakfast .Getting out the chopping board , we cut the tomatoes,ripped open the packet of baconand fired up the stove to cook our morning pick me up. Finishing off with a mug of tea.

The weather was looking dodgy to start with, the heavens opened. But by the better part of the day, the rain dried up so we could feast in peace, leaving the sun smiling on everyone in Dorset.

I went to Lulworth Cove visitor centre to learn about the landscape, absolutely fascinating, another visit will be needed to take it all in. I had the most amazing mint ice cream in the parlour next door. Thank you for cooling me down.

We stayed over night and woke up to another sunny day after a mug of tea, we headed home to catch the rest of the day. Sharing to another great breakfast with the bandana crew. No rest for the wicked !

Pancake Day !(Shrove Tuesday )

Hi, I'm so excited ! I've been testing all my frying pans to work out which one is the best one to toss my pancakes in. I've worked out that the best one to use is a nonstick and not to toss but to cook one side and grill the other then toss to finish.

I served up my pancakes with apple,strawberries and some golden syrup. Wearing my Chef's Chequered Bandana to keep with the spirit of the occasion. You can get yours here
