Remote and Isolated in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA

Working from home… in the office … now at home for who knows how long…it does not matter. Scotland Outdoors has been my go-to source for great adventures and stories of the home my grandmother told me stories her grandmother told her stories about. It is as if I am there and someday will make a visit from ‘wence my family came. So many places and so many things to see, taste and feel on my “someday” trip to Scotland. Thank you for helping plan the amazing out of the way adventures soon to come! -Pamela Pillar
