Nollaig Chridheil agus Bliadhna Mhath Ùr! In case you hadn’t guessed, this is Scottish Gaelic for Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year (well, actually, Christmas Hearty and Year Good New, but the sentiment is the same!). Thank you for supporting me this year and I hope you continue to enjoy my adventures in Scotland’s great outdoors in 2016. I’ll be back shortly with a proper round-up of 2015 and to welcome in the New Year. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with a photograph of me from 1989 in which I’m holding a toy camera given to me by Santa at the playgroup Christmas party – day one of a lifelong love of photography!
