Finally sun & Ben Vrackie
Finally the Sun arrived in the North East of Scotland and at the same time Declan Lunny, the Irishman in Singapore. We decided on a quick hillwalk, Ben Vrackie, near Pitlochry. Perthshire landscapes to start with.
Here the team, Irwin, Dec and myself. Bob and the ladies are not shown.
Halfway up is poachers loch if you know what I mean.
A straight forward, non boggy walk. Early or late would have been good for photos but this is not too bad. The view up the Tay.
There was still good snow cover in the Cairngorms in the distance.
Irwin and the iphone team shot.
And the team with better views to the East.
The straight forward descent towards Pitlochry...
... where we went to the Moulin Inn, a Scottish favourite. I went on to Aberdeen to catch the sunset over the Montrose basin.
