St. Mary’s Loch in the Scottish Borders

I got inspired by beautiful photos of a like-minded photographer that showcased the trees and mystical atmosphere of this loch and decided to explore it. Initially I wanted to walk around it as apparently there is a circular path, but I couldn’t find it (I did later on). Not too sure how long this whole adventure would take, we just walked about 4 miles on part of the Southern Upland Way admiring the loch, enjoying peace (hardly anybody there) and the hills of the Scottish Borders.


Harperrig Reservoir and macro

Not the best day for walking. I wanted to check out a place nearby and unfortunately it was too wet and muddy so just a quick walk and a decision to see more when it’s drier. Still I had some fun with macro shots of moss and water droplets. Plus there’s ruins of a castle near a farm house which are quite interesting.

Tyninghame Beach walk

One of my favourite beaches near Edinburgh. Always popular with families, campers and all sorts of walkers and horse riders.

A varied mixture of sands and rocks of various shapes and colours offers a relaxing day, ideal for a picnic or a walk.

A nearby cafe in the village offers great cakes and drinks.

A walk led by myself was 4 miles long, we took the high path first and then just strolled the beach. There are plenty horses about and this particular white one is my favourite.
