Royal Enfield 350 Classic checks out Loch Earn —

There’s something to be said for travelling at Classic speed —

I’ve been round this loch many many times since my first visit in 1959 on my 350 Velo and I have never spotted what looks like a gravestone halfway along the south shore before —

The stone is overgrown with moss but it does mention James Stewart and family – also Dunblane and a date possibly from around 200 years ago —

I think a little careful moss clearing might be in order on my next visit – meanwhile have a butcher’s over my shiny Enfield to the snow capped Ben Vorlich lost in cloud in the distance 🤠👍

A Trip to Aberfeldy —

in brilliant sunshine today —

Looking back over Monzie estates to where our home lies in Strathearn valley before rising again to snow capped mountains with Ben Vorlich abune them ‘a —

Then it was into the darkness of the Sma’ Glen —

before the delights of Glen Quaich caught Helen’s eye by Amulree —

Followed by the snow and ice covered wee loch up on the top of the hill —

and a quick off-road stop under the watchful eye of our happy snapper —

who kept warm with a series of Star Jumps —

while I grumbled about the unfeeling ijit who had dumped an old fridge in this beautiful spot —

I mean —

just look at it —

wonderful —

especially Schiehallion —

Who needs a fridge up here anyway?

Braco Castle —

is over there on the skyline amongst the trees —

but there is quite a dip between us with the River Ardoch flowing down through the nearer trees —

Blue skies and a snow capped Ben Vorlich over to the west —

and even snow on the Ochills to the south —

Temps may have been just above freezing but it was a nice day to be out and about 👍🤠
