Lake Louise she stole my Heart

Location MapLake Louise is much more remote feeling than Banff and so consequently it feels so much more like the wilderness. You don’t have to walk far before you leave the roads and find peace in the forest. Hopefully you don’t also find a bear, unless of course you’re on the other side of the electric fence that protects the inhabited areas. Even then, better make it two fences!

Banff

Location MapIt wasn’t the typical time to visit Banff during the Film Festival like you might expect. The end of October is a time of transition for the area. The green is exchanged for snow. Deciduous Larch pine trees that line the town streets turn vibrant yellows and oranges.

The residents nurture flowers of all origins (or perhaps their gardeners do it) and it’s this combination of stone, nature and colour that makes this area so quaint. Now if only I had millions of pound sterling.

Loch Coriusk on the Isle of Skye

Location MapI saw a stunning painting of Loch Coriusk and I was hooked immediately. Cows fed on the grass by the shores. The calm waters of the loch reflected the intimidating Black Cuillin and a dark shroud of clouds. I just had to figure out how to get to this intriguing place.

The Isle of Skye

Location MapTucked away far to the north, in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, the Isle of Skye is a real gem. It’s deceptively large, almost 100km from north to south with plenty yo explore. Varying between lush green Highland countryside and the steep, cruel and bear munros of the Black Cuillin.

The Lake District

Location MapThe Lake District is surely the most beautiful National Park in all of England. The home of her highest peaks, treacherously steep, but rewarding mountain passes, reflective lakes and colourful heathland.
