Penicuik House Estate

Another good walk with the Strollers in an area I would not consider visiting myself, simply because I did not know about it.

Great views of the Pentland hills, brushed with snow as we had some snowfall recently, interesting history and architecture. There are a number of monuments/follies spread around the estate, a ruin of a house that burned down and the current house of the owners which used to be stables. It made for a fine 5 miles in brisk weather.

Hope you like the pictures that I took that day

Corrie Fee in the Cairngorms

As a geography degree holder, a trip to the Corrie Fee reserve was a must and it took me 3 attempts to find it (usually the problem was that some paths were closed due to tree felling).

The walk takes you along a 2-3 mile wide forestry track to the ‘amphitheatre of glacial landscape’ as it is called in visitscotland website.

Least to say, it did not disappoint. Erratics, moraine, cliffs, meandering river, deeply cut post-glacial valley – must make a good field trip for a geography lesson.
