Just a Girl Who Loves the Great Outdoors…


I was first introduced to walking as a young child when, from the age of 7, my parents took me into the Scottish hills at weekends. Although I didn’t realise it at the time, these exposures were developing in me a deep passion for the great outdoors.  We stopped going when I was in my teens and I went on to study at university, get a job, marry and have children. As you do! It was only in January 2016, aged 34, that I started venturing out again. I immediately fell back in love with everything the Scottish countryside has to offer and I set myself the #100walkchallenge – to complete 100 walks in 2016.  I decided to document these walks and track the routes to share with others. That’s when this website was born!

You will find walks of all levels and ranging from 1-10 miles. I take care to point out if the route is suitable for a buggy as this is one factor which is important to me if I am planning to take my 2 year old and want to walk at anything more than snail’s pace! Most of the walks are in the Ayrshire area with a few starting to appear further afield as I venture out on longer hill walks at weekends.

Enjoy reading about my adventures and I hope that they inspire you to try one or more of the walks yourself. I’d love to hear from you so please get in touch if you have followed any of my routes or if you’d like to suggest a new one for me!
