    Day 16 - Inverness and Aviemore

    July 3, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    We woke up early to do some laundry and buy some last minute warm weather clothes for the bike trip. Chris (“the Bear”), our guide from H&I adventures picked us at the B&B at noon. (I’ll refer to him as “the Bear” throughout the rest of the post to not confuse him with the other Chris). We went to their office, a beautiful old converted stable where we met Donald (the organizer of the trip). They had coffee, tea and a delicious lunch of Caprese salad, three scottish cheeses and oat cakes waiting for us. The milk from one of the cheeses (a cheddar from Mull of Kintyre) came from Donald’s family’s farm and was our favorite. As scared as I was (disclaimer from Chris: Bogey wrote this post), I knew I was in good hands after that. The Bear fitted us for our bikes and we were off to the Cairngorms National Park for a test ride. He used this as an opportunity to assess our comfort and skills in order to create a custom biking itinerary for us over the next few days. We rode for about two hours through forest and glen in Rothiemurchus estate. I was very happy to have detailed instructions and coaching from our expert guide! We got settled into our B&B in Aviemore, the Ravenscraig and then walked down the street out to dinner at the Winking Owl where we got a good taste of some of the local beer made by Cairngorms Brewery.Read more

    Ein verwässerter Start in den Tag

    July 11 in the United Kingdom

    Das schlechte Wetter blieb uns treu und machte einen kompletten Strich durch unsere Wanderpläne. Unser sehr freundlicher Vermieter unterstützte uns bei einem Alternativplan und so ging es gegen 9:00 Uhr los Richtung Aberdeen.
    Fort George war unser erstes Ziel. Hier zeigten die Engländer den Schotten nach der verlorenen Schlacht von 1746, wo der Hammer bzw. die Maurerkelle hängt. Sie bauten eine gewaltige Festungsanlage -noch heute ene der größten Europas- um die aufmüpfigen Highlander ein für alle Mal in die Schranken zu weisen. Was ihnen auch gelang. Danach fuhren wir durch den Cairngorm Nationalpark gen Osten. Der Regen kam mit.Read more

    Aviemore, Ring Cairn & Stones Circle

    March 29 in the United Kingdom

    Der Steinkreis ist wirklich nicht groß und um ihn herum ist ein Wohngebiet entstanden. Von außen ist er nicht zu sehen. Man findet ihn aber per Google.
    Ansonsten haben wir nun beschlossen, noch eine weitere Nacht in Grantown-on-Spey zu bleiben. Den Kindern geht's noch nicht so viel besser. Das Fieber ist immerhin etwas gesunken. So können wir nur das Beste aus der Situation machen und uns etwas mehr treiben lassen.Read more

    Aviemore

    June 1, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    The test truly begins here (or so we thought..). First time camping for us! We pitched us at Rothiemurchus campsite which was quite nice and quiet (compared to incredibly busy Aviemore!) and had good facilities. We stayed for a few days and climbed Cairngorm and Ben Macdui. It was our first big walk and was pretty successful! A few aches and pains and we discovered how unfit we are..., but the rain stayed away and we got to see a herd of reindeer! First couple of days camping down and so far so good...Read more
