Wish you were here: Sutherland, Scotland

A few select photos from my family's hermitage up in Sutherland, Scotland. Sinking my feet into sheepskin rugs, rural junk shop finds, and the buzzard's nest outside my window are what I'm all about right now.

Hiding out from the whole world is great, and I've been putting the relief of a holiday into good effect - the clear air makes a great feedstock for hatching new plans. What do you think of the new site design, by the way? Two whole days were eaten up doing the sodding coding; no blog design service for me, no sir.

Oh, and I made a new friend. His name is Buddie, and he loves sugar cubes and chin scratches.

An Honest Drug will be briefly running on auto pilot for the next week, so don't expect much in the way of posts or responses until then. You can still find me on Instagram and Twitter, however!

  1. Oooo! You're even further North than me! It sounds like you're enjoying it up in Sutherland. It's some beautiful country up there :) Have fun, and don't forget - midges hate bog-myrtle :P

    1. It was a good respite! I was down in Inverness for a day or two, though. I'll add bog myrtle to the long list of potential midge repellents.

  2. Looks so pretty over there. I wish I could get away from people and head out to the country. I usually look at blogs on mobile, so I can't comment on the new design, except it looks OK on mobile

    1. I admit I'm very grateful for the opportunity to escape civilization, even if it's only for a brief period. Thanks for letting me know anyway!

    1. It's very pretty - I'll probably share more photos of it at some point.
