Aboyne Day 5 - alternatives to flying in cloud

Yesterday there was a stiff northerly and lots of cloud, with occasional showers. There was wave, but Booker decided that there were better views to be had on the ground than from the inside of a cloud, so various parties set off in different directions. One went to Linn of Dee to see the river as it rushes through a canyon, and then back to Birkelunn for lunch and an early start on the wine. Another went to Glen Tanar for a walk.

Last night's Birkelunn dinner was mushroom risotto followed by chilli con carne. Up the hill at Clearfield there was a magnificent dessert of bananas, chocolate, walnuts and ice cream, unfortunately not evidenced by photos.
