As Lynsey was taking part in this year's TGO Challenge, I had driven up to meet her in Braemar yesterday morning with Isabel, after our overnight halt at Cumbernauld on route. After meeting her, we had a leisurely afternoon in town with Isabel having fun running around the Highland Games park. Then later that evening, Lynsey went out to enjoy the festivities at the Moorfield House Hotel.
We spent the morning in Braemar meeting various TGO challengers, before having lunch at The Old Bakery. At around 1:30pm Lynsey hoisted her pack onto her back and headed south along the A93. Around half an hour later Isabel and I drove up the road to the car park at Auchallater to wait for her. After a snack of home-made chocolate buns, we set off walking along the vehicle track up Glen Callater with me carrying Isabel in the rucksack carrier.
