Heading home. Up quite early this morning. Eventually left the hostel about 9.00am. I drove up to Inverness before looping round to head down the A9. I've just stopped in Aviemore at the Mountain Cafe for old time's sake. I came here a year ago on the way back from a trip camping and walking in the Fainnichs. I was here again last October with my son-in-law and a friend after we'd walked north through the Lairig Ghru - the marvellous pass through the Cairngorms. This is a great cafe. Eating their "Fresh fruit glass with runny honey and natural yogurt" more to justify my place at a table than anything else.
