After a week off to celebrate hitting the big 4-0 it’s back to reality but I can’t really complain. Setting off a day earlier than originally planned, we had an overnight stop-off in Kenmore before motoring up to Aviemore via Ben Lawers and Pitlochry. A week of walks and runs then followed before we eventually returned home on Sunday for which, I think, the bodies are thankful – mine certainly feels like it could do with a rest!
Having previously spent two weeks in the ‘Summer’ in Aviemore with 13 solid days of rain, neither of us had very high hopes weather wise for a week in March but were determined to make the most of it regardless. As it was, our holiday coincided with some of the warmest weather in 50+ years! Other than some very light rain on the Saturday morning, the weather was perfect, with the temperature even hitting 22°!
Heading back in to work this Monday morning, the word is that more snow is on the way and that it will not be confined to the hills. Talk about perfect timing!
