Hiya! Today is all about AWESOME owls and this post is inspired a recent visit at the Scottish Owl Sanctuary in Polkemmet were you can go and look at the owls, learn about different types, see their flying displays, watch them being fed and go and play in the super fun adventure park.
Here are a few pics of some of the owls we saw there.
Aren’t they amazing?! I 💜 the 1 with the afro, so cute! The only bad thing was that it was really cold and wet, but hey I live in Scotland, but apart from that it was a great experience 😋 I also got this really cute owl ( a snowy owl ) at the gift shop
Some awesome Owl facts : 💫
- They can’t move their eyes, their eyes are like tubes which means they don’t rotate in their sockets like ours do. To look up or down etc they move their heads instead.
- They can’t turn their heads completely around ( I thought they could). They can only turn them 3/4 around either side.
- The colours of their eyes show whether they hunt in day, dusk or dark.
Dark is night
Yellow is day
Amber is dusk.
- Did u know that a group of owls is called a Parliament !!!
Isn’t that so cool !! I love learning random facts about stuff I never knew 👍
Here is the really cool slide that was at the centre. How awesome is this !!
I have always loved owls, they fascinate me and I have built up quite a collection of owl things over the years but prob my absolute fave is my Hedwig backpack that I got from Universal Studios in Florida. It doesn’t hold much inside but it’s sooooo cool, cute and cuddly !!
I loved my visit to the owl centre and give it a big 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me. !!
So this is my last photographic blog post from up here, I have had such a great time in Inverness and the Highlands with my family and I there are so many amazing photo opportunities here as it is so beautiful. I’ve enjoyed sharing the things I have seen with u all, thanks for all the likes, new follows and comments.
So to finish I am posting just some of the photos I took today of Loch Ness. We had our binoculars out on the search for Nessie and at one point from nowhere waves started coming into the shore as we were paddling in the water!! No boats or anything near by. Wonder what caused that !! It is a very atmospheric place, eventhough u were in the middle of the countryside surrounded by trees etc there was no birds flying about !! Were they avoiding flying near the water. Mmmmm interesting !! I convinced that there is something in the legend. Would love to see a water kelpie one day. !!
Did u spot wee Nessie ?
Hope u liked my photos. What do u guys think about the legend of the Loch Ness Monster. ?
happy Sunday guys ! Hope u all had a fantastic day
Today we went to a part of the highlands that I hadn’t been before called Elgin and Lossiemouth. It was absolutely beautiful. We even went swimming in the North Sea. Brrrrrrr!! But great fun.
Hope u like my photos. Ps the photo of the ruins is of Elgin Cathedral which was built in 1224 !!
The photos above are from the harbour town of Lossiemouth.
In the photo below my brother and I are watching the fish in the river jump up to catch the bugs !
Below is the view from my Nana and Bubbas caravan just along from Inverness Hi Nana and Bubba ( they read my blog !) 😘😘
Ended a perfect day with toasted marshmallows and a board game which I won. Woo hoo !!
Ps stay tuned for my hunt for Nessie adventure tomorrow
Hi! Guys From the Highlands of Scotland I’m up here in Inverness with my family for a long weekend and I am going to use this opportunity to do my first photographic blog post.
Wish u guys could smell the freshness of the air and see the sheer stunning beauty of this place. I love coming here!!
Tonight we visited a place called Rosemarkie in the Black Isle near Inverness. It has this gorgeous beach and excellent chance for some rock pooling and dipping of your tootsies Not too cold….Huge surprise !!
Along from Rosemarkie is Chanonry point where loads of people meet to take picture of the dolphin pods that come to eat the fish that are swimming up to the Beauly Firth. I’ve seen the Dolphins there loads of times but not tonight unfortunately 😔
Hope u like my photos. Messed about with a photo editor app to change some cloud colour. Love the purple effect !
Stay tuned for more tomorrow on the next stage of my highland adventure.
Bye Ari 💚💜💙💛

Hey guys! The last few days has been crazy, because me and my family has traveled all the way from Scotland to California in America! I can’t believe I am in LA!!
We landed yesterday at about 5pm ( local time) and after we got all our stuff we headed outside to catch our bus to our hotel. Disney land express shuttle woo how!!
It took an hour on the bus to get to our hotel so I had a much needed snooze😴😴😴 when we finally got to our hotel we checked in and headed up to our lovely hotel 😍 forgot to mention earlier but they knew I has a birthday coming up in the next few days so the staff had got me a birthday cars, a bag of goodies plus ice cream vouchers. How amazing was that!!
When we got in me and my wee brother David immediately fell on the bed exhausted 😣☺️😂 after having a sleep my family and I skipped over to Target. I got lots of awesome stuff that u can’t get over in Scotland so I was really happy 👍 I tasted my first ever Trail mix. (monster one) which has peanuts, raisins, M&Ms and little drops of choc and peanut butter. Heaven!! we also went for some Tacos. Mmmmmmm
The next day we went to Disney Land for the first time. We got the shuttle there and back. We had a great time and had a lot of fun going on the rides and meeting the characters! Fave ride… Space mountain. Awesome!! it was crazily busy though but we just wandered and soaked up all the atmosphere an all things Disney
We spent most of the day there but at about 5pm we went back to the hotel to rest and go for a bit of a swim. Got a wonderful surprise when we got back to our room, there was chocolate birthday cake and a fruit bowl as surprise and also vouchers for a breakfast for the family I be the hotel. So so nice.!!
After about an hour we got dressed and walked back to Disney Land, stopping on the way for dinner at Jack in the Box. OMG!! I know this is a fast food eatery but the burgers are amazing. I had a sourdough Jack. Best burger ever… Prob until we try another place as American food rocks!!
We went back to Magic Kingdom to see the fireworks display and parades. Just amazing!! Forgot to add bBefore that I will do seoperate Disney haul post
Today we’re going for a bit of a shop so when I get back I will do a haul post. I hope you enjoyed reading this and I will see u soon!
