After a couple of biggish hill days and warm temperatures, our energy was flagging a bit and today was forecast to be the warmest day yet. Wonderful weather again, but after mulling over a trip to either the Grey Corries or Bynack More near Aviemore, we decided on a lazy day starting with an exploration of Craigellachie Nature Reserve. Our route was almost the same as the Walkhighlands route, but with a detour at the end. The summit's an amazing viewpoint but the lower part of the reserve is just as beautiful, and even though peregrine falcons aren't currently nesting here there's plenty of other wildlife. Anyway, I'll let the photos do the talking:
