Aviemore

  • Sunday 1st July
  • Aviemore – Loch Morlich

So with temperatures reaching 30 degrees in Aviemore it was the place to head as destination number three.

We pitched our tent in a campsite right beside Loch Morlich as it was easy to access as we knew we had limited time here.

I actually really enjoy coming to Aviemore and this particular spot and do so quite regularly.

Loch Morlich is surrounded by forests and fringed beaches, with a stunning backdrop of the northern Cairngorms, Scotland’s largest mountain range.

It’s a place to chill and unwind, to hike or bike, to have a coffee or a glass of wine. We chose to unwind, with a wine keeping it low key and actually relaxed for a few hours in the evening by Loch Morlich with a beach bbq!

The weather was glorious but tonight those pesky midgies were out and about so we stayed by the beach until we were almost ready to hit the sack.

The weather continues to be glorious here in Scotland but unfortunately for me work is calling and my days chasing the sun are over for now!

To be honest with you The Shetlands and Orkneys are places I really want to go to….went to Lewis and Harris last year and they were spectacular…very rugged and remote…with stunning beaches. Xxx

    So you’re a little bit of a naturalist too Mary. Didn’t know the names of those plants. Thank you. You’re really giving your exiled aunts an education on the beauties of Scotland. Maybe we should have stayed put!! Love your blogs. Look forward to the next one.Xx
