You might have caught it on the sly, but a couple of weeks ago, HANON dropped their second Penfield Kasson collaboration, following on from the Kasson that they worked on back in 2013.
I’ve actually been wearing a sample version of this jacket for the best part of the year, and has been my absolute go-to, and has handled everything that the Scottish weather has thrown at it, with the help of the Halley Stevensons waxed cotton which it is made out of.

Emma’s car needed to go into the garage for some warranty recall thing, and the garage is in Elgin which is a little over an hour away from Aberdeen, so it called for an early start on Saturday, and I wasn’t best pleased with that.

It was absolutely pouring down one Sunday not too long ago, when I decided to go in a little mood because I was sick to death of the rain, and just wanted to go outside and explore for a change.

If you’re from Scotland, then there’s a chance that you’ve probably drove the A90 between Dundee and Perth and maybe you’ve noticed, or maybe you haven’t, but right before you go cross the Friarton Bridge over the River Tay heading southbound, Kinnoull Hill is on your right with it’s tower sat atop right on the edge.
Well, every single time we drive past, we always say how we want to go up there, and finally, we done just that!

The Scottish coast is lined with small villages like Pennan, which are just sat perfectly with their single row of coloured homes, and their small harbour, and they usually only have a single track road into them down what feels like the steepest hill know to man.
But Pennan has a very famous red phone box in the heart of the village, which film enthusiasts travel from all over the world to make a phone call from, as Pennan was one of the main locations in the 1980’s film Local Hero.

A friend from work told me about this abandoned outdoor swimming pool in Tarlair which is up in Macduff, so myself and Emma decided to head up there a couple of weekends ago. However, I didn’t actually do any digging before I went, so when we got there, there was basically a fun day going on, which included barbecues, bouncy castles, and all that kinda sh*t, so it was a bit of a wasted journey.

We actually visited Craigellachie Bridge last year, and I thought I had done a blog post on it, I can even remember writing it, but apparently I never, maybe I deleted it or something, so let’s just consider this the do-over!
On our way back from Fochabers the other week, we went through Craigellachie to check out the bridge and get some better shots than last time, but unfortunately, someone had pitched their tent right on the little beach area below the bridge which gives the most perfect view of the bridge, so we couldn’t shoot there.
