Our Adventures

Our Adventures

We love walking, climbing, exploring & relaxing. We love being outdoors. This is a collection of our adventures. From short walks after work with our two Spaniels along the river to multi-day expeditions in the Cairngorms with a wild camp, much laughs and awesome views. For us, every moment spent outdoors is magic. Hills, trees and streams.

Please have a read of our adventures, download the GPX files if you fancy the routes and please do leave us a comment if you have any questions. We’re pretty active outside and on this website so happy to blether.

This isn’t just about us. It’s about the places we visit & the people we meet. That’s where the magic lies.

The Lowther Hills loop. Another long day in the hills along the Lowther ridge. The ridge sits West of the A702 just East of Sanquhar. With stunning views. Loads of interesting radar & radio masts. Was pretty windy & cold but what a lovely route.
Culter Fell

Culter Fell

The Culter Fell Loop.A 24km loop around Culter Fell in the Lanarkshire / Borders boundary hills taking in two Graham's & two Donalds. It's a long route, but stunning and well worth a day out.
