Welcome to Doodlecat, where we enjoy the pleasures of life (with a slight bias towards the outdoors). This page is regularly updated with news and views plus information about any additions or changes to the various parts of the site. It acts as Doodlecat’s Blog too, so the odd rant considered opinion may pop up from time to time.

I would love to be able to say that Doodlecat is all my own work, but it isn’t. Much of the outdoors content is courtesy of the splendid people who participate in the annual TGO Challenge (there is a section entirely devoted to this unique event) and many others.

To help in tracking down that elusive morsel on Doodlecat, the search facility under the title bar above is tailored to help you find it, either on this home page (Doodlecat's Blog) all the rest of the site (Main Site) or – if all else fails - the internet!

So have a rummage around the old cat basket and enjoy your time with us!

What we did on our holidays.

Riverside - our holiday cottage
Last week end we got back from a great holiday in Morar, way up on the west coast of Scotland. Now, some would say that the first week of March isn’t the greatest time to visit this part of the world weatherwise, and if that is so, then we were very lucky! Sure it rained, and snowed, and hailed and the wind blew up a storm a couple of times. But there were enough breaks to make for fantastic days out, and our holiday cottage, Riverside, right on the white sands of Morar, was a real treat. Just wander down the garden to the beachand stroll along the sands for great views across to Rum, and some fascinating beachcombing. A great area to get away from it all, with access to Moidart, Knoydart and a lovely rail link into Fort William.

So here are some holiday snaps...

Beachcombing - tide coming in!

Reflections in Loch Eilt

Glenfinnan


Glenfinnan viaduct - constructed in 1897 in solid concrete!

Castle Tioram, a gem of a castle guarding Loch Moidart.

Above Loch Morar - just before this photo was taken we had been caught in a stinging hailstorm!


All in all a great break and our batteries thoroughly recharged. And whilst thinking of photographs, we have new photos of the month over in the Gallery.

Toodle pip for now
