Cairngorms

The journey from Nairn involved travelling through the Cairngorms on the A939 past the ski centres.

The ski slopes were covered in grass and heather, so the ski chairs looked odd on the green skyline.

The ski centres looked like Alaskan oil depots without the snow and all the equipment parked up. A helicopter was ferrying workers up to the top of the mountain.

When we drove up the Bealach Na Ba, which is the third highest road in Scotland I did wonder at the time where the highest road was.

Yes, guess what, we found it.

The Cairnuilt pass at 2199ft on the A93 from Glenshee to Braemar, but I didn’t know I was driving it at the time. A Goggle search later highlighted the fact.

After travelling on some ordinary roads on the trip down the East coast from John O Groats, the driving experience had just got better and challenging again.

We arrived at the Scone (pro scoon) C & C Club site in bright sunshine.

The site is on the racecourse at Perth and turned out to be one of the best club sites we have used. The site managers were certainly the most welcoming we have ever met.

This Campsite had two Safari type tents erected on decking to rent out that looked intriguing.

Just an overnight stay here at Scoon as we needed to move on.
