Hello everyone, hope you're well.
I've just arrived back from five days in the Scottish Highlands which was just amazing. It was a strange, but liberating feeling setting off in the car and I felt so grateful to be able to head back to the beautiful Scottish Highlands.
I stayed on a wonderful, working, family croft in the centre of Sutherland with some amazing animals. I had a superb view over Strath Brora and the river which was glorious (see photo opposite). The lambs were still very small and it was just delightful to hear them bleating away as I went to sleep every night.
Sadly the weather was pretty awful, with heavy rain for most of my stay, which made filming and photography quite difficult. However, this is Scotland and you just have to accept and embrace the weather at this time of year and just persevere!
I visited many places, including the Highland Wildlife Park in Kingussie and The Falls of Shin near Lairg, followed the magnificent Strathnaver Trail and explored Dornoch and Ruthven Barracks. My last stop was the amazing Bruar Falls, which you can see on my YouTube channel, or watch it above on this website.
I hope to venture up again soon and aim to have videos of the other places mentioned, published over the next few weeks, so please do subscribe to this website and my YouTube channel to be kept up to date with new releases.
Stay safe everyone and thanks for sticking with me.
All the best,
