Stunning drive through Glen Shee this morning. Both wimped out of the chair lifts as very cold up there. Instead we had a late breakfast of coffee and toast in the mountain ski cafe. Amazing views all around which continue right down the glen to Blairgowie. We didn’t see the snow although the girl in the cafe did say it was on the tops above the ski lifts.
Stopped at Scone just outside Perth on the C&CC site. Its on the edge of the race course but no racing on today. Walked through the fields and found the back way into Scone Palace – no one there to charge us so that’s a free visit – don’t mind if we do thank you. Beautiful gardens and a great children’s adventure park. No kids there so we did the zipwire and the climbing wall. Iain proved to be a bit of a mountain goat, up the wall in seconds – he was pretty dam quick, just couldn’t get over the top so back down the way he went up:). I on the other hand only got half way up before I admitted defeat.
As we didn’t pay thought it only right we sampled the afternoon tea in the palace tearooms – well would be rude not to. Walked around the outside of the palace and dodged the multitude of peacocks as well as the hoards of coach load tourists. The sun is out and its loads warmer again now we are out of the mountains.
A gentle amble back to the van and maps out for the next leg of the trip home. Aiming to get straight down to the borders tomorrow in a one hop. Trying to convince Iain that he would like to stop off at Hermitage Castle on the way, not sure he is keen but we’ll see.
