Heading North East our overnight stop in York was short and the heavens opened up!! After purchasing two new brollies, we explored what we could in heavy rain and downpours!
We discovered evidence of Mark’s family heritage . . . Molly Brown (Mark’s grandmother) and Browns (Browns Motors) Ha Ha!!
Excitedly we head further North to Laggan in the Scottish Highlands to visit Kate and Al. Its always wonderful to have a reunion with them. It is autumn and the scenery is colourful and dramatic as we hike through the nature reserve. Al and Mark are in luck as they spot a Golden Eagle souring over the ridges of the trail.
We dropped by and visited Kate’s work at Russwood adjacent to Newtonmore Station.
Our Sunday at Blair Castle was fantastic. We highly recommend a visit to the castle with its beautiful gardens and very interesting and informative displays inside.
