Saturday 5 October 2019 - Aviemore parkrun and Cruben Beag


 

 

 

 
Mick and Gayle joined us for the picturesque Aviemore parkrun, on a well surfaced there and back course along the Speyside way in the shadow of the Cairngorm mountains. Only 88 people took part, but they managed to fill the café afterwards.

Full results - we were all happy - here.

After returning to Newtonmore we changed into hiking gear and drove a short way to the foot of 590 metre Cruban Beag. A small hill with fine views. A pathless ascent beside a deer fence brought us in little more than an hour to the summit pillar where a 'selfie' was taken. Gayle's more comprehensive report is here.

After lunching on the way back to the car, we returned past The Centre of Scotland, and a memorial cairn for the MacPherson clan, provided by its American descendants.
