The tinberry travels are the tales of a Scottish travel blogger sharing stories, adventures and travel related nonsense as she explores the world bit by bit. Here, you’ll find narrative style posts as well as destination guides, travel stories and hints and tips. While the blog stared as my solo venture during a long term backpacking trip, you will now find a mix of my own solo travel, alongside couples getaways and day trip reviews with my husband Andrew.

We are not world nomads, we don’t live out of a campervan and we’re not on any specific mission. We just enjoy experiencing new places and mostly fit our part time travel around full time work. We love exploring the world but we don’t believe in country counting or visiting X number of places before X birthday – we just want to take things slow and squeeze in a some travel adventures whenever we can. As well as travels abroad, we take every opportunity to explore in our own home turf and love promoting our home country of Scotland whenever we can! We don’t claim to be experts; but we hope to inspire others to try and fit travel around regular 9-5 jobs and the fun of exploring locally.

More about the people

Scottish travel blogger Kirstin of the tinberry travels

After university in 2010, I spent an awesome year solo travelling throughout Australia, trying lots of new things and discovering plenty of new places. Since then, I’ve been hooked on travel and found a passion for exploring; whether its solo adventures abroad or local day trips around my home country of Scotland. In recent years, I’ve had solo adventures to Iceland, Canada and the US and been lucky enough to travel to Finland, Estonia and Latvia on projects in my “day job”. I’ve lived short term on Jersey in the Channel Islands and enjoyed plenty of city breaks to the likes of Dublin, Leiden and Paris and, of course, countless day trips and walking excursions in Scotland. I do 90% of the writing here on the blog but I also have a little help.


Andrew of the tinberry travels

My travel companion, tech-man behind the scenes, proofreader and photography model, (oh and my husband too). Andrew’s travel history includes plenty of skiing expeditions from the Canadian Rockies to the French Alps, a European tour in the 00’s and of course adventures with me in Australia, Montenegro and Denmark to name a few as well as joining me on most of my day trips, shorter expeditions and soon a belated travel honeymoon. Also a skilled content writer and blogger himself, over on his own projects Andrew is more used to writing film and tv reviews in his free time but every so often you’ll find him here on the tinberry travels adding some flare and giving words and opinions whenever driving reviews or male input is needed.
