In this weeks video, I travelled North to the Isle of Arran. I had great expectations but they were soon dashed!

The Isle of Arran dubbed as “Scotland in Miniature” but in my opinion, it should be called the Lake District of Scotland! I certainly don’t mean to offend anyone by that statement. but the landscape to me felt more akin to the Lakes than it did the Isle of Skye. I only mention the Isle of Skye as a point of reference simply because that is what I had imagined it would be like! Maybe it was just my assumption of the place that was wrong!

DISAPPOINTMENT – I travelled up North to spend 5 days on Arran. After the second day, I found myself sat looking at the map trying to figure where I could travel to away from the Island in order to take better pictures. I was so disappointed with what I had seen. Again, this was possibly simply down to my assuming the Island was more like Skye and it certainly isn’t!

IT GOT BETTER – I stopped with the self-pity, rolled my sleeves up and cracked on. I am so glad I did!

This video just goes to show what can be achieved when you knuckle down and just crack on!

WEEKLY VLOGGING… Since I’ve committed to weekly vlogging, you get the best and the worst. Besides, it’s probably good to know that we don’t always have successful days!

I make at least one video a week, and I’ve got some amazing locations penned. Please make it worth my while and support the channel.

Hi Garry, I have been really enjoying your YouTube vlogs. I especially liked the one on Arran. I live in Irvine Ayrshire and I see the Island every day. I’m always amazed at the view of it from the mainland and have many pics. The way the light plays on the island at different times of the day is truly amazing. Thanks for some fresh inspiration.
