A Castle in the Sky

In March 2013, after years of talking about it we eventually sell up and move out of the city with our 2 year old, Gracie. We both grew up in the countryside and this is what we want for our daughter. So we swap a 2 bed flat in London for a small country pile on the west coast of Scotland that needs a lot of work. I've done a bit of interior design and my partner, Ed has a good knowledge of the outdoors – but we're on a tight budget and we've both got a lot to learn.

A birthday discovery (Mar 9)

It’s my birthday and we’ve just been for a walk around the gardens and found this… hidden in a yew tree behind the lawn.  The perfect birthday surprise.


We last saw the house nearly a year ago (2 viewings in one weekend – the second very rushed) so we somehow missed it.  It has a rope ladder so we took a tentative look inside. It’s going to need quite a bit of fixing up – but definitely one for the list. Maybe next summer…
