The first year we were in Scotland I was a little puzzled to discover that the schools have a two week holiday in October. It seems like a strange time of year to be out of school and the weather is often less than ideal.
But now we have embraced this yearly hold over from a time when school kids were needed to bring in the potato harvest and we spend our “Tattie Holidays” finding new trails to walk.
Then last year we went to the Isle of Skye. And oh-my-goodness, was it ever LOVELY!
This year we are heading to the Northwest Highlands of Scotland, a far corner of this country that we have yet to discover.
I expect there will be lots of tea and hot cocoa inside the cottage we have rented with our friends, but we’re also packing our waterproofs in the hopes of blazing a few new trails.
So those walks will make up my Chasing Daylight challenge for October. I’m looking forward to discovering them, and then sharing them here!
Happy October, friends!
PS If you’re playing along and #ChasingDaylight in your part of the world, where are you hoping to walk/bike/swim/run in October?
