Cloud Surfing – Scotland

GrumbleSmiles was set up to provide innovative answers to tackling the problems of loneliness in later life.    Many older people are less able to get out and about, which can be the first steps towards a life of isolation.

My travel around the clouds continue (you can see more of my travel adventures by clicking on CLOUD SURFING in the TAG CLOUD).   Today I invite you to join me on a trip to unknown destinations around the world and an opportunity to talk to new and interesting people.    All at no cost and from the comfort of your own armchair.

We are going cloudsurfing to Scotland.

Below is a very atmospheric photograph of her trip to Scotland which she made with her son in August 2017.  It’s well worth virtually travelling with her to see some of the sights of Scotland’s Highland’s islands and cities through the eyes of an American abroad.

Her trip was done a year ago and you can tell by the warm clothing she is wearing, that the weather in Scotland is nothing like the hot house climate we have had during the summer of this year.  You can follow the rest of her trip by clicking on the link below the photograph.

My thanks to Lisa Carnochan for allowing us to travel with her.

In the weeks ahead, I will publish more blogs and photographs from my cloud surfing travels.

  1. An interesting blog, I enjoyed in my minds eye visiting aberdeenshire, the clyde and the ship repair shipbuilding yards, and then the family in Ayrshire and places celebrating ‘Burns’ and the electric bray at Maybole where a ball rolls up hill. It is all in the mind?

  2. the nearest I ever got to the western isles and those ‘toucters’ [those gaelic speaking scots?? who ever they are?] was at a Mac Bray ferry while in drydock on the clyde for its annual inspection, or a spot of whisky choicing on the saloon bar shelves of some scottish hostility.
