We had our good friend Ivan up visiting for a couple of days this week, enjoying some peace and quite in the sticks away from the rat race of down south! I took him for a drive up through Glen Shee, absolutely gorgeous at this time of year. We stopped off in the Spittal hotel for some homemade soup and bread - scrumptious, I would highly recommend it! After spending Wednesday night consuming far too much cider and champagne we decided to blow the cobwebs away with a good walk along at Reekie Linn, the highest water fall in Scotland, it's only 5 minutes from our house. The water fall is amazing, even at this time of year when the rivers are really low, the falls are still huge. We were determined to get down to the base of the waterfall but couldn't find any safe paths so we'll need to pick our neighbours brains as there must be some way of getting down without having to abseil over the edge of the cliff side!!!
