|Along the River Eidart|
Last week I spent a few days in the Western Cairngorms with Peter Elliott of PHD. We went up Glen Feshie, followed the River Eidart up onto the Moine Mhor, then descended back to Glen Feshie. The weather was cloudy with occasional showers and a brisk cold wind. The nights were chilly. But the clouds were above all but the highest tops and the surging rivers, wild landscape and masses of flowers made it a wonderful trip.
We tested some new gear and talked much about insulation and layering. I'll be writing about this in forthcoming issues of The Great Outdoors. In the meantime here are some pictures from the trip.
