The Cairngorms

Today we left the city for the country and visited the majestic Cairngorms, the highest mountain range in Britain. It was spectacular and my wish for snow finally came true. The scenery was a mix of woodland, mountains, castles, villages, rivers and fields but I’ll let my photos tell the story.

The rest of the photos were taken at a place called the Linn of Quoich. Linn is Gaelic for pool of water. IMG_5207

The circular hole is called the Devil’s Punchbowl.

All of this was just an hour and a half from Aberdeen. Any city that has this on its doorstep is all right by me.
