We arrived during the festival rush in August. Somehow we still managed to get a place in a hostel that was affordable and were soon off to explore the city. One of the highlights is the view looking back from Arthur’s seat. Just walking through the streets in the city center takes you past the… Continue reading Edinburgh

In Glasgow we arrived at the Queen’s Street Station and went straight to the lost and found office. Again, no sign of our guitar. We got to our hostel and soon were off again, cycling through half the city to get to our date with Maggie. We spend the night in a relaxed bar and… Continue reading Glasgow

Rannoch Moor

Our journey started with a trainride along the West Highland Line, that i would recommend if you are travelling through this part of Scotland. While we waited at the train station in Arisaig, one of the steam trains frequenting this line passed through. The train ride was amazing. Still stunned by the beauty, we got… Continue reading Rannoch Moor


We arrived late in Uist, where we just had enough time to pitch our tents, have a shower, eat dinner and go to sleep. The next day we climbed gently along the River Rha to the viewing point towards the Quiraing. The downhill part was over far too quickly, but gave us also plenty of… Continue reading Skye

The beach was stunning and in the morning the sun came out to greet it. We started cycling north along the west coast… Continue reading Outer Hebrides


The ride along the eastern coastline north of Campbeltown is amazing, though hilly at times. We pitched our tent just next to the Arran ferry at the beach near Claonaig. I hadn’t heard about the isle before but it looked inviting. The water was also inviting and we didn’t mind the cold temperature too much.… Continue reading Kyntire

Northern Ireland

We spent our first night in Northern Ireland just next to the border. When we crossed it, we hardly noticed it. If it weren’t for the big protest signs from the border communities against the Brexit and consequently an EU border deepening the separation of the two Irish countries once more. The next day we… Continue reading Northern Ireland

Ireland – part two

We didn’t always make it to a campsite. So we wildcamped in parts and one time just asked a local man if he knew a piece of land where we could pitch our tent for one night. Michael immediately invited us to make use of his garden and made sure we were lacking nothing. After… Continue reading Ireland – part two
