Alastair's Holiday around Pitlochry
Day 8


Today I headed to Rothiemurchus which is the area beside Aviemore. This is certainly an area where you could spend the whole day and a picnic around the loch would be a real treat.  I had a Scotch pie, buttered role, a piece of millionaires shortbread and a pint of milk :-)

While there was some sunshine I didn't have much luck with it when taking my photographs which is a real pity as the area is most beautiful.  I took two sets of pictures.. one around the hills of Rothiemurchus and the other around the loch.

I was really wanting to show you the contrasting scenery of the moors and hills and then the ancient woodland around the loch


The above photos are from the Rothiemurchus Visitor Centre and I must say I was impressed with the range and quality of the goods on offer along with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.

I now headed of to see the loch...

There are truly excellent woodland paths that take you all around the loch, a walk of some 3 miles. The above picture if of the visitor centre and you'll have noted the castle ruins on the island in the loch. 

You can read a book about the History of Rothiemurchus
