Tillie’s Adventures – Anagach Woods, Grantown on Spey


This lovely autumn adventure took me to Anagach Woods, Grantown on Spey. I love Grantown on Spey in the Cairngorm National Park. It’s a pretty place and it has the most wonderful dog friendly walks and a fabulous range of shops to get all important picnic supplies. And a fancy piece from the bakers. Tillie likes a fancy piece. I…

Tillie’s Adventures – Sunnyside Beach


So who looked at the photograph and thought that Tillie had been to the Caribbean for an adventure? Nice huh? That’s Sunnyside Beach. It’s not in the Caribbean, or the Mediterranean. It’s near Cullen which is a pretty coastal village on the Moray Firth in North East Scotland. Just over the hill from where I live. Cullen is the place that…

Tillie’s Adventures – Lochan Uaine


Legend has it that the fairies of Glenmore wash their clothes in Lochan Uaine, which gives the water a green colour. Well they have to wash their clothes somewhere, don’t they?

Tillie’s Adventures – St Cyrus Nature Reserve and Beach


I visited St Cyrus Nature Reserve and Beach in August 2015 so this is an adventure from Tillie’s archives. But it’s a special adventure and a beautiful place. A special adventure for two reasons:- 1) One of my favourites persons Gwandad Cushionz was born and brought up near there. Well, he’s now Gwandad because he’s lost his Cushion. Somewhere. 2)…

Tillie’s Adventures – Crannoch Woods


Crannoch Woods is on the edge of Cullen. I was going to buy Cullen with my first five pounds and I suppose I could’ve owned the woods. But I don’t like shops so didn’t go into a shop to buy Cullen and therefore I don’t own the woods. I think they are owned by Seafield Estate. Anyway, Crannoch Woods are…

Tillie’s Adventures – Bin of Cullen


We live beside the Bin of Cullen. Also known as the Bin Hill. It’s one of my favourite places for exploring and it’s only a short walk from our house and work. The bottom part of the Bin, also known as Little Bin, has woodland, forest and a burn. The top is covered in heather. There are plenty of forest…
