A mini adventure

A mini adventure on the train today. With heavy rain and possibly thunderstorms forecast for later in the day it was up with the lark and off early into th Cairngorms. The plan, to bike the old drover's route (historic cattle driving route) from Kingussie to Blair Atholl via the Gaick pass. I was keen to try out my recently serviced bike 
( thanks Mark at OrangeFox bikes!), which definitely felt a lot better post servicing! Beautiful warm day with plenty of sunshine, and after 50+km it felt good to stop and be whisked back to the start by train.

A still day

Does it get any better?


Big sky----the whaleback just to the right of the cottage on the skyline is Schiehallion

Journey's end, well, the self-propelled part........
