Three things: 1. I’ve been posting less to spend more time with my dad. 2. Having a meet up in Edinburgh on Saturday, and Glasgow on Sunday. Check story for details! ☺️ 3. Isle of Skye is unreal. Ferries and dinosaur tracks and mountains of mountains, I can’t wait to release the book and show you this trove of images I’ve been hoarding. 3. I’ve been writing some hopefully insightful “how I do it” notes coming soon because I get asked a lot how I afford to travel always.
The Irish naturalist Robert Lloyd Praeger called this area “the loneliest place in this country”. But not in a sad way. “You are thrown at the same time back upon yourself and forward against the mystery and magic of nature, and you may feel something of your own littleness and your own greatness.”
We certainly didn’t set out to find this view. In fact, we hiked the wrong lake altogether. A couple of hours on a trail is a good way to learn someone’s pace, however, and meeting them in the middle is what it’s all about. Dad called his “a gentleman’s pace”, and mine “a long stride”. I’d call it learning to slow down, that lesson I’m always after. And Wales makes a nice setting to do this.
