Winter wonderland, Braemar

After last Sunday’s disappointing walk in Tullos Wood we went further afield today for a walk in Braemar. The recent snowfall in the highlands has created a winter wonderland and we were gifted a beautifully sunny day.

The last part of the drive from Crathie to Braemar is always lovely but today the mist over the valleys combined with the snow against a brilliant blue sky created a fairytale picture. Braemar was at its very best.

We did the Queen’s Circular Route which is one we’ve done many times before. It’s a nice mix of rural fields, forest, and a ridge that overlooks the village.

You can just make out Invercauld House in the distance in this next photo.

The woods form the last part of the walk and are home to lots of red squirrels. We saw four of them on our walk back.

It’s so nice to go out for a walk in the woods, to fill my lungs with clean, fresh air, and to enjoy the lovely country views.
