Homemade Bonfire Night 2017

Homemade Bonfire Night 2017

So for the past few years we have been going to the local bonfire night, there is usually one in the village and the kids can muck around with their friends in the mud. I guess the muddy mess might have been easier to contain with new Bogs as waterproof footwear but it was not to be! This year however the whole of Lochaber failed to get a license to run any bonfire event! Strange. The nearest one was a 1 ½ hours drive away in either Oban or Inverness!

Our new favourite loch

As you will have gathered by now between March and early October most of our outdoor adventures have a fishing element. With the trout season limited to less than 7 months it would be a shame to waste any time (so say the anglers) but it could get quite monotonous after a while - especially with a non-fishing member of the party.

At the beginning of autumn we’d gone on a thoroughly enjoyable Ranger-led walk at dusk through some woodland. We’d spotted bats swooping and tracked them with some handheld detectors the Ranger had given us; we’d heard owls and (a little alarmingly when you can barely see) some bees somewhere nearby in a tree.

If you ever plan to visit Aberdeenshire, come in the autumn! It’s the one dry (ish) season and the whole countryside bursts into brilliant colour in one final blaze before winter sets in. But do remember your wellies – this is Scotland, after all, so ‘dry’ is just a relative term. And so this is the perfect time of year for Mini to test a pair of Bogs wellies!
