Easter Sunday – Braemar
Easter Sunday in Braemar.
MWIS announced more gales and rain.
Over breakfast the sun shone.
We gambled on the weather not playing to the rules.
The Linn of Dee, just down the road.
A walk along Glen Lui and part the way along the old drove road towards Aviemore.
Only a very short way up this 28 mile trail from Braemar.
A bit further than both ‘Bob Scott’s Bothy’ and the abandoned Derry Lodge.
Bob Scott’s Bothy
Far enough though to see the vast mountain plateaux of the Cairngorms.
Ominously dark and topped with snow.
Lui Water before it joins the Dee
Most definitely a mid summer walk in my book.
