Late summer – loving this warm spell!

The days are shortening, and I’ve noticed longer shadows casting earlier each day. Becky (my whippet) and I have been seeking shade and coolness in Faskally Forest, a couple of miles North of Pitlochry, as temperatures climb into the mid twenties daily. Dunmore Loch is overflowing with water-lilly and giant yellow flag seed pods. You […]

Spring was a bit late, and now it’s the 1st June and Summer is definitely in the air with record temperatures in Scotland today along with vivid blue skies, swallows swooping and bluebells blooming.

ROOBEDO REPAIR

Did you know I am happy to offer a repair service to any Roobedo garments / products? Or maybe you need the style slightly updated or taken in to fit? Fabric, in wear and washing, can stretch / loosen and change fit over time, and it’s amazing what a little bit of TLC can do […]

Embrace change with the perfect piece

Rowan berries on the road…everywhere signs of nature fast moving from Autumn into Winter. It’s a beautiful time in Highland Perthshire.
