We get less than our fair share of sun here in Scotland. The winters are long and can see us under snow for multiple months without ever seeing the grey of the pavements. Even in the summer it can be ‘dreich’, our very own Scottish word for the grey overcast days that are the norm.
When the sun does shine we have to make the most of it. It’s taken me until now, aged 31, to realise that when the sun’s out you simply have to drop everything and get outside and soak up the rays while they last. That’s exactly what we’ve done this year and I feel a whole lot better for it, I even have a bit of a post holiday glow. This photo was taken on the beach at Anstruther yesterday. It was 25 degrees and there was no place I’d rather have been.
