Avon is Embedded in the middle of the Cairngorms mountains, and
as such is probably one of the most remote and isolated lochs
in the Scottish Highlands. There are no roads up to the loch except
those only negotiable by land rover. This view is from the highest
point which gives a view of the higher reaches of the glen and
the the whole length of the loch. At the time it was getting critical
as to whether I could take a panorama, and get back to my bike
at the Ski Center before dark. I walked down to where I thought
I had tied my bike to a fence under one of the new mountain railway
support columns. This was just as it was getting really dark.
I walked past the bike by a few hundred yards and had to plod
back up the hill hoping I could see it in the rapidly deepening
gloom. Well there it was, and I was very relieved.
