South Queensferry Bridges & the Maid of the Forth

I had a nice walk past the South Queensferry Bridges (Railway Bridge, Forth Road Bridge and the New Queensferry Bridge) with friends 28/8/18

When we arrived we went in to the Honey Pot Creative Cafe for a cuppa and it was more interesting as you can make and Create things, which looks pretty cool.

It was a lovely day passing the 3 Briges and looking at the view.   When we where walking along we seen the Maid of the Forth Boat Coming back over.

Just mentioning about the Maid of the Forth, That was a great experience too.    on Friday Night 24/8/18, myself and some friends from RNIB Scotland went on the Boat trip Called the Maid of the Forth.

Had a lovely time especially taking pictures from the top with the sun going down and the moon out.

It was really great seeing everyone and catch up, can’t wait for the next trip hehe

Scottish Day Tour -Aviemore & The Cairngorms

I went on a Scottish Day Tour with Lothian Motorcoaches to Pitlochry, Avimore & The Cairngorms 14/8/18.

Everyone who was going on the Tour had to get the Coach at Charlotte Square, when the Coach arrived we met our Guide Scott and our driver Chris.

Our first destination was Pitlochry where we had a long walk round the Dam, bouncy bridge and the main street then we headed back to the Coach. It was amazing walk, just what I needed to warm up in the morning hehe also the views of it was great.

Our second destination was The Cairngorms where we got the train to the top of the mountain, which was pretty cool as I’ve never done it before.


Once we got to the top of the mountain, the view was totally magic. A bit of drizzly of rain but it started to come good with the sun coming out.

After seeing the the view, we went in the cafe to get something to eat before heading back on the coach to our final destination.

Because of the weather with the rain, there was a change of place, instead of going for a walk in the Heritage, we went to House of Bruar. Having a look around and buying chocolate fudge and having a cup of coffee was nice but the weather turned out nice when we were at the Cairngorms so I was disappointed we didn’t change to having a walk in the Heritage afterall.

The outcome of the day Tour was incredible from the start to finish, my best thing of the day was The Cairngorms, just the thought standing on top a mountain looking a the view was just amazing.

Well recommended to visit and have that great experience. Can’t wait to visit sometime in the future.

PentlandHills Regional Park

What a great day out walkinh part of the Pentland Hills 5/8/18.

This is a place that I didn’t think I could do because of climbing hills but It’s not all that bas as you can walk on the lower ground and still get a good view of things.

I didn’t climb any high hills for a bigger view, that’s something I can go back to the Pentland Hills and do another day.

Just walking about in the forest was pretty cool, i like that kind of thing plus it was so relaxing and peaceful.

There was a sign that I passed, it was funny because someone altered the sign and it said “no parking, pissing place only” lol hehe.

Did you knew that Amy Soldiers do exercise in Pentland Hills with firing there guns, a sign posted for warning, just in case you get a bullet in you bum.

A great atmosphere at the Pentlands as everybody would pass you and say hello, it was nice, everyone was enjoying there day out.

Ideal for walking your dog’s or just hanging out with family/friends. Would consider going back again sometime very soon.

 

Scottish Day Tour – Fife Coastal Trail

I went on a Scottish Day Tour – Fife Coastal Trail with Lothian Motorcoaches 2/8/18.

The coach picked us all up at Charlotte square, just round the corner from Fraser’s (top of Princess Street) we started getting introduced to Scott our Guide for the day also James as he was showing Graham directions as it was his first day driving this route Round Fife.

We were heading of to St Andrews where it was very nice walking around passing a Golf Course, St Andrews castle, St Andrews Cathedral, University Square Park and also had a cup of tea before heading back to the Coach.

Our next location we were heading to was Kingsbarns Distillery Visitor Centre which was pretty cool getting shown round by Kate our Guide. Learning a lot about ins and out  of whisky, we also seen a small video clip and had a wee dram taste at the end.

Heading back to the Coach to our final destination was Anstruther where we had something to eat out side looking over to the boats.

Overall it was just amazing day, really enjoyed ever minute of it. It’s true what people say that St Andrews is a lovely place to visit. Thank you to Scott, Gramham and James for making this day tour so perfect for us all.
