Highland Safaris, Aberfeldy

We went on a Highland Safari today and it was the highlight of my week. It was sensational. The sun came out, there was snow on the ground, the views were superb, and I felt like I was on top of the world. We went up into the hills on a guided tour in two four-wheel drives. We stopped a couple of times for some tobogganing, lunch, a walk, whisky, and lots of photos. I highly recommend this tour as they take you off the road into areas you wouldn’t otherwise see and the guides are very knowledgeable. We had a picnic lunch in the bothy at the top. A bothy is a Scottish word for an outback hut or cottage. There was a log burner inside and so it was a cozy and warm place to stop and rest – not that it was arduous in any way given we were driven up there!Β  We also spent some time playing in the snow. I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story.

  1. Stunningly beautiful, Rachel; I’m jealous!! I’ve looked into the possibility of moving to Scotland for a year, but the UK government doesn’t make it easy, even for Canadians. 😦

    1. I can believe it, Richard. It was really difficult for us to get visas for here but I love living here so much. You have some pretty amazing scenery on your door-step though.

  2. I love that area and have skied, cycled & spent time on the mountains there, summer & winter (and winter camping). Ben Lawers area is worth a visit if you can get up there too, the road may be shut with the snow though.
