Natural Information has now moved to Scotland! I am currently working at a Field Centre based in Perthshire. I went on a trip to the North West of Scotland last weekend and took the picture you see above. I visited Applecross and Torridon, along with driving other to Skye for a brief period. I hope you enjoy the photo’s. The scenery is absolutely stunning. Highly Recommended.

I also have a new personal twitter account which is:

Sunset (Malham)

Here are some photo’s from a sunset I managed to capture whilst working in the Yorkshire Dales. 

Longleat

If you haven’t head of Longleat before, it is an amazing place. The house itself is lovely and definitely worth a look around, there is so much to do at the ‘park’ it makes an awesome family day out. I took over 400 photo’s whilst at the park and borrowed a friend SLR in order to get some good pictures whilst visiting the Safari Park. Please enjoy the photos.  

Cairngorms

If you are looking for somewhere truly breathtaking to visit this summer look no more. If you are into hill walking there is nowhere quite like the Cairngorms. Some of the photo’s in the gallery are the view from Ben MacDui, which can be reached by walking through the Linn of Dee. Ben Macdui is the second highest mountain in the UK standing at 1,309 metres, however the walk to it is stunning. The Cairngorm’s is one of the wildest places left in the UK and is home to a large array of rare animals, breathtaking views, and mountain bothys which can provide basic accommodation for longer walks.

I cannot express how much the National Park has inspired me to be outdoors more. The landscapes are vast and ‘uninhabited’ which makes a change to many popular mountain walking areas. There are numberous Munro’s which can be ticked off whilst walking to Ben Macdui, along with flatter walks following the valley floor for those who fancy taking it a bit more steady.

All in all it is absolutely stunning. It really is. Especially when the weather’s good!

Lynton

Lynton is situated on the Exmoor Coast. It is a beautiful place to visit. If you are into scenic views, rocks, blue seas, tea rooms and pubs, it is a must. If you follow the coast path from Lynton towards the ‘Valley of the Rocks’ you will not be disappointed. The walk itself is along a relatively thin path which takes you through woodland where ‘wild’ goats roam, outcrops of rock, and along cliffs which boast amazing views. I didn’t take too many pictures whilst walking along, but above is a selection of pictures which were taken throughout my walk. Lynton is truly a must see, along with its neighbour Lynmouth, which hosts a quaint river side walk and equally attractive scenery.

Three peaks challenge

I am raising money for a cause close to my heart and completing the national three peaks challenge a week on Saturday! If you can spare a pound or two it would be much appreciated as every penny counts, visit http://www.justgiving.com/ring476 to read more and please donate if you can. I promise to take many pretty pictures during the event 🙂

P.s. I have the weekend off work and therefore will be uploading some new blog posts.

Happy days.
