Rabbie’s Trail Burners launch a new tour and a convertible coach

I’ve long said locals should take a tour bus around their city now and again to appreciate what they have, and now there’s a brand new Edinburgh City Tour to try. Rabbie’s Trail Burners have been running small tour groups since 1993 and are famed for delivering small (max 16 people), personal tours around the UK. […]

A trip to Loch Ness; Sketches from the NessBus

Yesterday I travelled to Loch Ness and back on board the NessBus, and these are my rough sketches from a great day out.   We left Edinburgh just after 8am and in the following 12 hours packed in an unbelievable amount of sights, sounds and history from this wonderful country. As we pootled around Scotland […]

Preparing to leave on a tour of Scotland, ‘The Travelling Gallery’ will be available in Edinburgh until Friday, 30th August.   Parked in a space which made me think it must of been lowered in by helicopter (well done driver!), the bus is […]

Posted on May 3, 2013

Tonight’s sketch is actually from a couple of days ago. I was waiting for the number 8 bus home and had a few minutes to wait, not enough to sketch but too many to waste. So I thought I’d start a sketch, one that should grow into a view from the North Bridge, across the […]

More wee scribbles from the bus today. As it felt a little warmer today I should really of been back on the bike but I couldn’t resist the ease of the number 8 bus into town:)

Stuck on you

Heading to work this morning in the wintry darkness, everyone was huddled around their glowing little screens, as if getting warmth from the gadgets in their hands.
