Rain and shine
Two days out recently guiding Chris & Clay from the USA. For our first day we had storm-force winds and torrential rain forecast, so we wisely agreed to go mountain biking rather than hiking, which was a good choice. Although we got very wet everyone was still smiling at the end of the day. A mid-bike trip to the Carrbridge Kitchen cafe helped! The following day could not have been more different, with no rain, lots of sunshine and light winds. We headed up Sgor Gaoith from Glen Feshie, then the wonderful romp along the undulating ridge all the way to the Argyll Stone. We then headed down through beautiful pines and birch-woods (lots of blaeberries to feast on, otherwise know as bilberries to the English or huckleberries to our American guests) to finish with tea and cake at the Potting Shed tea-room at Inshriach! Our friend and trainee Mountain Leader Alex Cowan was along today too to help build up his experience.
