Glen Turret

This was taken during one of my Ultimate Challenge crossings of Scotland. This trip went from Sheil Bridge to Montrose. This shot was taken near Garva Bridge barracks on the road from Loch Lochy over to Kingussie. The weather was superb for the whole week and my father who was with me was on his first ever backpacking trip(at 56) was well and truly hooked. The next year it rained every day!

Part of the Corrieyarrick military road from Fort Augustus to Kingussie. The Monadhliath mountains lie in the background with snow still on the tops.
