Is Spring here.......?
Depends where you are! The birds are moving, the snow drops are out and everything suddenly seems lighter and brighter. Up in the mountains it's still deep winter, but down in the glens you could be forgiven for thinking that winter is on its last legs. Plenty of beefy showers forecast from the west today so we headed east (funny that!) for a spin on the bike around the excellent Moray Monster Trails at Fochabers. It's been a while since I was out on the bike, and no matter how fit you think you are for other activities mountain-biking always comes as a bit of a shock. Great to be out though, and to feel warm sun on the face for the first time in what seems an age. No rain either! Moray Monster Trails have just been awarded £100,000 to improve and extend the trails---it will be great to see what happens here.
