A 6:30am start last Saturday, as the whole family piled into the car for a trip over to the Cairngorm Mountains. We are lucky enough to live in a small town on the edge of the Highlands and within 30 minutes we are pretty much into the wilds of Scotland.
...Past the out of season Ski centre (The Lecht)
..arriving at 8:40 at the beautiful Loch Morlich where Mr N H-L is to take part in the Annual Cairngorm Adventure Triathlon (Canoe/Bike/run).
The sun shone all day, and if it hadn't been for the fierce and chilly wind blowing off the Loch you may well have thought you were in another country!
and then back along the twisty, windey road .....home..
