  • 6. THE BORING STUFF “guys... I know you’re going to say it was Ben, but … do us a favour and just DON'T!!” When we finally got on our way through the Glen Tilt area of Blair Atholl, which is situated on the boundaries of the Cairngorm National Park (biggest in Europe) we had a long banterful walk and a spot of lunch. Our first day consisted of a 3 hour long bus journey followed by an hour long wait in which we were subjected to a awkward convo with a passing biker and the frantic searching for sunglasses lens.
  • 7. Out of the 5 highest mountains in Scotland, 4 are present in this park The Cairngorm National Park is apparently home to over 17000 people. However on our 3 days excursion we were lucky if we seen more than 2. The Cairngorms contains the finest collection of different landforms outside arctic Canada - from granite tors to heavings and leavings from Ice Age glaciers. It also includes a rare kind of pinewood found only in Scotland and Norway.
  • 8. When we arrived at our first campsite, just along from the Falls of Tart … I mean Tarf, we were immediately ambushed by the plague of midges. It was here that we met our accessor Bob, Phil, Jeff, something, who checked if we had put our tents up correctly and had our food cooked properly. There was only one tragedy. All we can say is it involved Ben getting it out for a pee and the swarm of midges LOL :L Gemma’s leg >>> (Jk)
  • 9. Our second day go off to a bit of a cold and wet start. No we're not talking about Dougie’s big salmon (dont get excited Stuart) After crossing the river BAREFOOT, climbing a far from hunky dorey hill, we set off again on our Duke of Edinburgh adventure The funniest part of the day had to of been Gemma’s face as she ran screaming in fear from the cute doggies (rabid wolves to her) We also saw some very … interesting … people on the 2nd day who were very keen to meet us. HULLOOO THERE !!!!
  • 10. Throughout our walk we came in contact with many animals such as ; A heard of red deer Red squirrels A Golden eagle (7 of them !) The occasional roadkill
  • 11. Our food throughout the weekend was mostly Asda 3 for a £1 sweeties, uncooked pasta, watery chilli and sweet and sour sauce on rice. For lunch we had a packed lunch that had gone slightly hard and mouldy by the 3rd day However, the suffering was all worth it when we drove up to the golden arches of our beloved Mcdonald’s when we finally finished those very long 30 miles Calum, do you need a fork for that?
  • 12. Thanks for watching our presentation 
