Athol Estate - Perthshire

An early start, up at five to pack the car and trailer and hit the road, 8 hours and a couple of stops later we arrived at the start of a 9 mile unmade track that would lead to our home for the next 7 days. The road was not so bad and the scenery was stunning, there were plenty of Red Deer on the slopes and the car put up quite a number of grouse, they must know that they are both out of season.

Coming round one of the final bends we were confronted with Bruar Lodge,

After a good night sleep, with my feet hanging out the end of the bed, we awoke to a bright sunny morning, Eddie, Neil & Steve headed down to the loch to try and tempt the trout to rise to their flies, and I took the dogs to explore the heather. This is a truly desolate and beautiful part of the world.
