Spittal of Glenshee Tour

Monday, March 24, 2008

This afternoon, I am presenting some images from a tour just completed which was undertaken in very snowy conditions. The route took us up to Spittal of Glenshee in the Highlands where we came to an abrupt halt due to adverse weather which resulted in the road being closed.We had a break at the Spittal hotel ( full up with two stranded coach parties) and then doubled back to Pitlochry and on up to Inverness via Killiecrankie and the A9.

The expedition proved quite a bit of fun and provided opportunity for good photos-and some snowball fights!

Spittal is a Scots word meaning a hospice or refuge for travellers, especially in mountainous country. The Spittal of Glenshee proved very apposite on the day we arrived-just standing room only!
