Craigellachie Nature Reserve and the Mountain Cafe, Aviemore

There is so much to do in Aviemore it's hard to know where to start, so I decided to break myself in gently by starting small and working my way up to the more adventurous sights. Nestled in the Cairngorm National Park, Aviemore is a busy town all year round with tourists and locals doing various activities by land, mountain, water, snow and tree (yes, they have zip wires - I cannot wait for that one to happen!).

Etape Loch Ness 2017

Etape Loch Ness 2017

'Let's sign up for the Etape', I said, back in the summer of 2016. I had loads of time to train... Fast forward to March 2017: a house move, job relocation and time moving faster than the speed of light meant that the odd spinning class and last minute weekend ride would have to suffice.
