Tony Connery - Hillwalking in Scotland
Walk The Walk - Scottish Walks.
Hi there, Tony here, I hope you enjoyed my website, so now I would like to give you some information about myself. Lets just say on May 2002 I was 47 years old, single and currently reside in a town called Paisley which is in the district of Renfrewshire, about nine miles south west of Glasgow City Center. Plying my trade as a official taxi driver at Glasgow International Airport, I have the flexibility to be able to go Hillwalking, basically at the drop of a hat. Around five years ago, as a taxi driver, I found that I was constantly being asked questions about my own country from tourists and how little I knew about it. Since I was growing tired of the Spanish, partying till six in the morning, beach type holiday, I resolved to see more of Scotland. I usually manage 3-4 trips a year now and I have enjoyed some of the most beautiful scenic locations in Scotland. The peacefulness, openness and immensity of the hills and mountains is so appealing to one from the rat race, that it has now become a bit of an addiction to get away to the deep blue yonder. The dog you may see in some of the photographs is my border collie of six years from May 2002, called Shona. She's getting on a bit but always a wee place in my heart for this lady.
Updated as in Januray 2009, Shona my beautiful Border Collie is finished with her walking, she's not too well, shes the same as me, gettin past it. Most of my walks have been with Shona and watching her run wild while on a walk has given me so much joy. I still have quite a few walks that I have finished but they have still to be added to this website, approx 30 walks. Don't worry i'll be nipping the webmasters head to get his butt into gear. Just keep an eye on my Latest Walks guide for the updates.
Updated as in Januray 2012, Shona my beautiful Border Collie has passed away peacefully. I thank her for being my friend and I have many happy memories with her. You will all be able to look through my site and see the fun we have had. Right now I'm unemployed but this gives me scope for more walking throughout Scotland, so watch out for the latest walks on my home page.
