I have created a new section on Hikelines – ‘Sketchbook Walks’. It’s a place where I will post sketches from days when I may not have been hiking but went out and about sketching.
Home along the ridge, on the horns of a dilemma, tomb with a view, lunch at Finn McCool’s.
A familiar face recognised, loughs and lookouts. Signs and signals from the past.
Walking a familiar trail, noticing things missed before, re-visiting an idyllic spot, light at end of the world.
A change of plan, in and out of the clouds, midges for lunch, losing a familiar trail
Touched by a rainbow. Slipping and sliding. A giant’s seat.
Walking home and rediscovering familiar trails. Being thankful for where I live
A long, long road, a stiff climb and a skiddy descent. Missing the feeling of remoteness. Closing the circle.
Evocatively named hills, high passes and long descents, a stone circle between two lakes and a surprise ending.
Majestic views, beaches, harbours, mountains, loughs, dappled sunlight, stone circles and shady woods. A beautiful day to eclipse yesterday’s deluge.
