Took my 11yo this weekend up to the Cairngorm range and walked into a bothy for an overnight adventure.
The forecast was for the howling wind and rain to give a brief 48hour window … so Saturday morning at 7am we left for a 3.5 hr drive up the road.
Temp was -1C walking in but sun on the face and felt good.
The walk is under 10km and with only one stream to negotiate as the other 2 have small makeshift bridges over them.
Temp was forecast to hit -6 which is cold for us. Bothy looked warmer than it actually was as no insolation to speak of and a poor wood burner.
Ruby enjoyed it though – this was taken in the morning as the tea was brewing and the candles had melted the ice on the inside of the windows.
A glorious morning and a decent walk out too …..
The best thing about days like this is it gets children enthused about the outdoors and also great to spend time one on one with the kids. Normally there is a juggling act to some with ….. and finally below a GoPro movie of the 2 days …..
