Woodland and Riverside from Grantown-on -Spey - Cairngorms (Scotland) - 27/02/18 - 7 Miles - Helen

Helen bravely enters Anagach Wood.
I bravely enter Anagach Wood.
Then we both get scared.
The mountains are always in view.
Having passed the Cromdale Suspension bridge, we then followed the River Spey.
Lots of Pine trees alongside the river.
Approaching the Old Bridge at Speybridge.
I am not saying it was cold or nothing, but it's the first time I have ever seen icicles.

Creag a Chalamain and Castle Hill (Circular) - Cairngorms (Scotland) - 25/02/18 - 8 Miles - Helen

Utsi's bridge near the start, where we had to wait for a party of reindeer tourists to finish their lecture.
Sometimes the going was easy.
And sometimes it wasn't.
Although some people do have a tendency to dress over the top !
We reach the summit of Creag a Chalamain.
I decide enough is enough and set off for home.
Helen however takes it lying down.

The Lily Loch and Loch an Eilein (Circular) - Cairgorms (Scotland) - 24/02/18 - 6 Miles - Helen

As we were not in Derbyshire, instructions on where to go were a must.
So that was the start located.
The Lily Loch and fat poser, on what was the only snow/ice free walk of the week.
The ski or Vunicular run up away on the Cairgorms.
I was worried at the time that my gloves wasn't matching the rest of my outfit.
