Left Perth at 630am for the 1hr 40 minute drive to Glenmore Lodge .With MWIS forecasting blue skies this should be a great day in the hills.I stopped at Loch Morlich to take some photos of the sunrise although there was still a bit of clouds shrouding the Cairngorms it was still stunning.

I left the car at 830am it was -1c in the car so it might be a bit slidy on the bike.Cycling through the Scots Pine was great the skies were blue now so the sun lit the up the forrest nicely. Just over a mile along the track i arrived at Lochan Uaine simply amazing with its turqoise green colour.

Onwards and upwards another 2 miles along the track i came to a bridge where i left the bike and headed up the hill on foot.

Was quite a steady climb upto the plateau where it leveled out in time for a breather and an opportunity for some photos of the awesome scenery surrounding me.
After around another hour of the steepest part of the walk i arrived at the top 3 hrs after i left the car to meet a fellow hiker taking in the beautiful surroungs .We had our lunch togather and shared stories of our adventures in the hills.unfortunately after 20mins it got a bit too cold to be hanging around so we said our goodbyes and i made my way back taking in as much of the scenery as possible.
