Inspired by trekking the Camino Frances in Spain in Autumn 2016, I returned to my home in Edinburgh and continue to walk here every day, exploring the city and the wonderful countryside further afield. Click on the underlined headings to read each blog!
I have always loved travelling by boat and so did not even consider flying to Orkney when I set off to walk the St Magnus Way pilgrimage. Many years ago, I was hugely inspired by Nick Thorpe’s Adrift in Caledonia which not only took a trip around Scotland by water, west from Edinburgh and back again by the Firth of Forth (see above!), but told stories of monks in small craft pitting their human strength against the might of the Irish Sea.
