Pitlochry (25 Dec 2014)

Christmas day 2014 was beautiful, so I drive to Pitlochry and walked up past Black Spout waterfall to Eradour Distillery, across the fields to Moulin, back down to the town and along the river back to the car.  Then I drove home via the south side of Loch Tummel and Aberfeldy, with a short diversion along the Shiehallion car park road.

The day after the night before is great for walking as there are so few people about.  I saw less than a handful on the track from the car park at Linn of Dee on my way to and from the Chest of Dee.  The roads were pleasantly empty as well.  Apparently this is also a wonderful wild swimming spot, but not in the middle of winter on a none-to-warm day!
