Peak heather season right now in the Cairngorms, and it really has to be seen to be believed. Summer seems to have arrived (belatedly!), and today was just magical. I soaked it all in with a 50k mountain bike through the pines and moors. The colours are so eye catching you have to be careful not to lose concentration on the track in front of you---plenty of stops for looking required today! Glen Feshie was the highlight (as usual) with wave after wave of purple heather, and a lovely section of singletrack just snaking through it......rude not to.
