Honeymoon in a Hurricane

20th October 2017, 20 photos.

Honeymoon trip to Glen Shiel and Speyside dodging as best we could, Hurricane ex-Ophelia. 3 bike days, 4 hill days, 1 big waterfall, 4 new Munros and 5 soakings!! But we loved it all!!

A' Bhuidheanach Bheag summit ahead of the storm


Honeymoon lunch on A' Bhuidheanach Bheag


Useful strip of the old A9 for a car park, ready for the drive from Drummochter up to Cluanie


A tiny glimpse of blue sky on the climb to the Falls of Glomach


The Falls of Glomach in torrential rain


Sodden descent from the falls and the sun has the nerve to momentarliy poke through again


Drying out slightly after a soaking on the climb to the Cairngorm ski car park down to Boat of Garten


The back road to the Boat

Kim on top of Sgor Gaoith - good fortune as the cloud lifted from the summit for 10 minutes - but we felt we deserved it!
