Pine Cathedral

Second of five days out with Ros today, indulging her love of forests---and what forest we have here in Aviemore and the Cairngorms! We had a good tramp around various parts of Rothiemurchus including the lovely wee hill Ord Ban, Loch an Eilein and Loch Gamhna, stopping regularly to admire some fine specimens of Scots Pine, the cathedral-like quality of silence in the forest and the play of light across the purple heather and green pines. Next on the agenda is to experience the wide open space of the Cairngorm Plateau---watch this space!
