Mountain Walks in Scotland and Ireland

I’m not a true hiker.


I’m a fair-day hiker at best, and in short spurts. I’m overweight, out of shape, and have poor ankles, and have no wish to spend hundreds of dollars on specialized equipment. However, on a non-raining, non-snowing day, I enjoy a nice walk out in the woods or up a hill.


When I’m on vacation, of course, this urge is higher, as there are places to explore and hidden gems to find in the nooks and crannies of a new land. This is the time you are MEANT to go and find what’s along that path, or over that hill.


So go, find a hill, climb it. Discover what you may. Keep that discovery in your soul to remember on a day with rain, or with a broken leg, or with aching joints, to remember when you could explore.


Here are some of the photos I’ve taken along walks on hills and mountains in Scotland and Ireland. #mountains #ireland #scotland #discover #explore




I write historical fantasy novels, mostly set in Ireland, and a contemporary romance based on my parents’ 30-year search for true love. Don’t miss information on Celtic myth and history, as well as practical travel planning tips, and hidden places, in my travel books.

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad. Facebook: Homepage: Blog: Twitter:
