Only a short drive outside of Grantown, the Anagach Woods were everything we had hoped for… beautiful heather carpets, superb ridges with vertiginous falls on either sides… and ice!! lots of ice!!! causing some tricky descents through the tighter sections… It was 2hrs and 15kms of much appreciated fresh air and exercise and great to see both girls coping so well (its been a few weeks since we have been able to get the bikes out for any length of trip)
The River Spey surged past the last parts of the ‘red route’ past a Scottish curling club which prompted many questions from both girls…. it was back into the forest and a short ride back whilst searching for the elusive red squirrels.
After yet another chat with a few couples in the car park in the woods, we headed northwards towards Banff and the North-East coast….
We were delighted to chance on the site for tonight at Gamrie… with the owner (Linda) nothing short of brilliant in her hospitality…. Now looking forward to a walk on the beach, the aquarium (perhaps) or Scottish Dolphin Centre or a chance to see some off the Scottish castles enroute towards Dundee tomorrow….
