A Boxing Day stroll

It’s a long time since we’ve managed to walk on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, but it was the last walk that was a bit further from home. Not much and nowhere new, but it was a cracking day and well worth the effort.

We parked at the Visitor Centre car park at Glenmore and then set off around the eastern end of Loch Morlich to pick up a path that would eventually lead us to the Lairig Ghru path, where we would then head north again and to Coylumbridge, there picking up the cycle path to take us back to the car.
