Emma's car needed to go into the garage for some warranty recall thing, and the garage is in Elgin which is a little over an hour away from Aberdeen, so it called for an early start on Saturday, and I wasn't best pleased with that.
However, after all the garage formalities and stuff were over, I was in a bit of a better mood because Emma suggested that we take the long tourist route home and that meant that I got to swing past some of my favourite spots along that route back to Aberdeen. Read More
It was absolutely pouring down one Sunday not too long ago, when I decided to go in a little mood because I was sick to death of the rain, and just wanted to go outside and explore for a change.
So I dragged Emma out to New Slains Castle to inevitably get soaked and battered with the gale force winds, but what else you gonna do on a Sunday, right? Read More
The Scottish coast is lined with small villages like Pennan, which are just sat perfectly with their single row of coloured homes, and their small harbour, and they usually only have a single track road into them down what feels like the steepest hill know to man.

Mill of Nethermill is basically an area with some holiday homes near Pennan, but there's a lovely rocky beach situated in a sheltered part of the coast, so we stopped off here to have a wander, climb some rocks, watch seals, get scared by an otter pup, and take some pics. Read More
For our HANON x Diadora V7000 "Inter City" collaboration the other month, and with it being inspired by rail travel, I dragged Emma out one night to explore the dark and dingey tunnels and car parks around Aberdeen's train station. Read More
I'm forever spending too much of my life on Instagram looking at all these great photographers visiting these amazing places in Scotland, and that's exactly what I was doing one night a couple weekends ago when we were up in Fochabers at the caravan when I spotted someone paying a visit to the Well of Lecht Mine, and it looked awesome just nestled in the hills!

Before you read any further, this post mainly came to be because of Pokemon... but that's definitely not a bad thing! Read More
After Emma had showed me a picture of a disused quarry a couple of weeks ago, we took a drive up Inverurie way that weekend to a place called Tillyfourie where said quarry apparently was and then tried to find the place. Read More
Still trying to make use of those longer summer nights whenever possible, I wanted to park the car at the beach and take a stroll round the harbour and up into the bottom end of the city centre (Emma will tell you it was her idea), so I took the camera and the trusty 24-70mm and off we went.

Anyway, there's one place that's I've spent a considerable amount of time at over the last 9 months because of work, and as lame as it sounds, that's a car park in the city centre... Read More
