Showing off database driven websites

Hiya, it’s me again. Sorry I’ve no played with you since April 2015. Hope you haven’t missed me too much, the truth is, I have been cheating on you with another website. I decided to build my own DB driven website and I have decided that I now hate you.

Community shut off from Clyde Walkway

I often enjoy a walk along the Clyde Walkway. It runs past my home town of Carluke, gives people easy access to neighbouring towns and villages and it’s a great way to see what Lanarkshire has to offer.

New Geocaches

Over the last week I have been working on some new geocaches. I have hot and cold spells with geocaching. I have discovered some fantastic places that I would otherwise not have known about it because of geocaching, although I can also say that I have felt many an anticlimax when finding an insignificant geocache. […]

Fort Augustus

South Laggan

Our second day walking is now over and we have arrived at the Great Glen Hostel in South Laggan. The walk has been great so far. Some stunning views, awesome people and plenty of tasty whiskies. We’ve decide to try as many whiskies as possible throughout the week. So far we’ve already had Ben Nevis, […]

On the way to Fort William
