One of my all-time favourites, which captures the true spirit of Christmas…
I’m fast discovering that North Berwick is a town with a long history – and some of it is hidden in full view! Take, for example, this bijou whitewashed building on the sea front…
Fascinating in so many ways, the white berries of mistletoe have a long connection with Christmas. But the truth goes back still further, as any Druid would tell you…
Next in my series on doorways is this lovely entrance to St John’s Church in Ballachulish…
In the early 1700s, a lot of troubled water flowed under this elegant bridge in Aberdeenshire
A Scottish queen held captive on a tiny island… hope, fear and loss… and a daring bid for freedom. The walls of Loch Leven Castle are so full of memories!
Hidden from sight until you’ve almost fallen into it, this amazing feature is carved into the rock below Tantallon Castle.
A spooky tour of St Andrews, where it seems that every street and every building has its own spectral inhabitant. Would you wander around here after dark? I’m not sure I would!
This lovely new pencil drawing is just finished…
Mirrors, cupboards, windows, bathroom tiles… all of them benefit from a really good wipe. There’s no time to waste!
WILDLIFE AND NATURE
Evergreen, toxic, and able to live for thousands of years… it’s no wonder the yew tree was revered in ancient times.
Following my feature on the Trees of Dollar Glen, I’m taking a look at its lovely array of wild plants (and a couple of show-stealing insects!)
