Spittal of Glenshee / Perthshire visit – Part 1

Finally got out the house to do some walking, etc., and was quite surprised by the beauty of small (very) things.

We headed to the Spittal of Glenshee, a remote area just south of the Cairngorms and the Glenshee Skiing “resort” in Central Scotland. We went from Glasgow, then Stirlingshire, and finally, the A9 (now an almost complete dual carriageway), to Pitlochry. Where there was a great deal of low fog – looked spooky.

From Pitlochry, it was then on a simply dreadful road (the A924 with black ice), that turned into the B950, that then lead us on to the A93 (running between the Spittal and Blairgowrie). From here, it was easy to see the Cairngorms, where the Glenshee Ski Resort is located.

From here, we had the turnoff to our destination of the night, the Dalmunzie Castle hotel, which we will have more on tomorrow.
