My cup runneth over - a sharing post

I am slowly making my way back into reality following the holidays. This Christmas I received some fabulous gifts, including a one-year Historic Scotland membership. This means I can visit all the Historic Scotland properties for free. With entry to individual properties ranging from £4 to more than £10, the cost of being a tourist can add up quickly. If you are in Scotland and plan on visiting a number of these sites, it is worth getting a membership like this, and I had been planning to buy myself one in the New Year. Lucky me, Santa beat me to it.

I also received several Lonely Planet guides about Scotland, to help me with my research for this blog. One of the books was the Lonely Planet "Walking in Scotland: 66 Great Walks."

This time Santa proved just how in tune he is with the things I love because unbeknownst to him, I had already acquired a copy of this very book.

The book gives excellent descriptions of walks all around Scotland. There are outings for all levels of walkers, from a pleasant stroll at Aberlady Bay near Edinburgh, to a challenging high circuit route in the Cairn Gorm Mountains.

It seems unfair for me to retain two copies of the same book when someone out there might be able to put the second copy to good use.

In the spirit of a new year of adventure and exploration, would anyone out there like to put his or her name in the hat for my spare copy of this suberb Lonely Planet book?

Just leave me a comment about your favourite place to walk in Scotland. If you don't have a blog but still want to enter, email me at scotland4thesenses@googlemail.com and include "Scotland walks" in the subject line.

I'll draw a name on Monday!

**This giveaway has now finished. Congratulations JuliaR for winning the book***
