We went for a lovely long walk in the forest near Braemar today then finished it off with a walk to the summit of Creag Choinnich. We don’t usually do both walks in one go – we usually either do the forest or the hill but the kids were both keen today and we all loved being out in nature.
The paths were icy in places making it treacherous but this added to the adventure. It’s also good for balance training.
It’s always nice to enjoy a view at the end of a walk.
Near the bottom on the way down I did eventually slip but there wasn’t even snow or ice there. I took my eye off the ball because I thought we were in the clear and I ended up hitting my shin on a rock. It’s fine now but I’ll probably have a bruise there tomorrow.
Longs walks in nature are so good for health and wellbeing. We all loved it. If only we could do it every day.
