Virtual Loose Ends

Lochend Woods: a grey, gnarly, curly tree in a woodland.

Virtual Loose Ends was a series on Walking Talking from June to September 2020, going on a virtual adventure around Scotland using connections from one place to get to another. It follows on from the Loose Ends series where I have been able to do this in real life.

The series has rules, which are that the places must not have featured in the original Loose Ends series and also that it will begin at Aberdour Castle and conclude at the V and A in Dundee. Loose Ends is about Scotland so will not feature any place not in Scotland, even with the benefit of being virtual.

The series will feature seven places in each post:
