Scottish summer?

Now that the rain is lashing on my windows again it is time to reflect on the past few hectic weeks of sunny weather, sort through hundreds of photos and finally get round to writing up all the routes. Instead, I’m off to Norway tomorrow as there is still powder to be skied at 70 degrees north.

Over the past few weeks I’ve had loads of help with route hunting. I’ve even been lucky enough to have had personal guided tours of a few runs which has made my research much more fun. In Moray I was shown round a couple of routes by Nick, Marie and Angela of Walk, Jog, Run Moray. On my way back south I detoured via Deeside to run a route suggested by Neil Stewart of Running The Highlands. Before heading to the north east I took trains, ferries and buses to get to a place I’ve wanted to go to for years – the Mull of Kintyre. The Kintyre Way Relay will be held this coming weekend (7th May) and I really hope that the sunny weather returns in time! The organiser, Rob, and his wife Isla were extremely welcoming during my short stay with them. It has been a real pleasure to meet so many great people during my research trips! Here are a few photos from those trips…
