Building An Ark (+ Other Ways To Avoid Springtime Showers!)


Time to build an ark?

The abundance of springtime showers we've been experiencing lately reminded us of this
playful, 'Noah' themed commission, hand painted by Karen Edward @ Funky Scottish!

Meanwhile, if you're really looking for something fun to do on rainy days in the East Neuk, we recommend...

+ seeing historic, hand-crafted boats at Scottish Fisheries Museum
+ watching the latest adaption of Noah, starring Russell Crow
+ meeting animals of the ocean at St Andrews Aquarium


And remember...

"A rainy day at the beach is better than a sunny day at the office"

Ramblin' Rose - The Perfect Gift For Wild Girl..


Be a 'Ramblin' Rose' this May Holiday (and all summer), with a gorgeous, functional-meets-feminine back pack from the Funky Scottish boutique.

It's perfect for a leisurely hike along the Fife Coastal Path! Just throw in an extra layer, a flask of coffee, maybe some sweet treats for the journey...and hit the track!

If you're thinking about pulling on your walking boots, we also highly recommend reading the inspiring true story Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail.  The story, about one woman's 1100 mile adventure, is now also a fabulous film starring Reese Witherspoon.
