Skiary: a wild retreat in Scotland

Look at this place. I can feel the tension in my shoulders going just looking at this photograph. This is Skiary in Loch Hourn in Scotland, a guesthouse in which there is no electricity and you can only reach by foot or boat. I discovered the existance of Skiary via the Guardian’s travel article on remote retreats sans wifi and other modern conveniences. I have always wanted to visit Scotland so maybe I will have to devise a plan to visit next summer.  They have a great facebook page with more images which I encourage you to check out.

Who to follow on Pinterest: for gardeners and outdoor lovers

Pinterest, the picture sharing platform, can be an intimidating beast if you’re new to it.  It is a massive time waster, but if you’re an image collector like me, it is a vast and valuable resource.  If you’re new to pinterest and looking for like-minded green fingered pinners, here are a few of my favourite follows:

Enhabiten: for heritage imagery, rustic products, interesting textiles, healthy food and country scenes.

Kaitlyn Harun: for interior gardens, cacti, natural products, typography, vintage clothing.

The Small Garden: almost exclusively garden design inspiration

French Grey: for florals, inspiring gardens, french interiors.

My pinterest boards can be found here.  Happy pinning!
