• Kim and Del Hogg walk towards the shore on a sandy Scottish beach under light blue skies and whispy white clouds

    Hi there, we’re Kim and Del Hogg, a Scottish couple with no fixed abode. We’ve been working on Going The Whole Hogg and travelling full time since 2018, learning to enjoy life at a slower pace after years of more hurried adventures.

    What draws us to a particular place or country? It’s not always the same. Sometimes it’s architecture. Other times it’s food, or more broadly, the culture and personality of a place. Most often, it’s mountains and the prospect of outdoor adventure.

    This blog largely reflects those interests, with a primary focus on creating in-depth travel guides accompanied by carefully crafted photography and video. If you’re here researching a destination, we aim to give you what you need to make your next adventure happen. And if you’re simply browsing? Perhaps we can spark an interest in somewhere different, something new.

    For now, you can find us in Scotland.
