Scotland with miniatures

Prior to having a family, planning a trip north of the border was a whole lot easier.

Decide on rough location; convince someone else to come along; find cheap train ticket; buy map (or dig out from collection). The finer details of exactly where to walk, eat, drink and sleep could be decided upon on the train journey up, sometimes on arrival at the station.

A monster of a walk

A bite-sized chunk of the Jurassic Coast

I flop onto the shingle of Lyme Regis beach, an extra large portion of chips in hand. I’m exhausted, and more than a little surprised. When I headed east from Exmouth, I’d been expecting two days of gentle walking among rolling coastal hills.

A riot in Spring

My return trip on the Haytor Hoppa
