|exploring the forests at the weekend|
So last weekend we went for a walk exploring some of the extensive forest around Strathpeffer and Contin. It was a great wee walk, and the trails looked amazing for mountain biking. So now winter and the darkness is here I decided it is time to charge up the bike lights and hit the trails.

I only went on a 1-2 hour route and it was great. Mt biking at night is great fun, even if the trails are easy. All went well, but I was quite surprised and a little 'anxious' when I met 2 guys in camo gear, on quad bikes with rifles in the middle of the forest!
They just burnt past me a couple of times, but it did feel a bit like the film deliverance, and I thought they may see me as their sport (pray!!). Trying to get out of the way I slipped onto a smaller, quieter trail. The bonus of this that they didn't follow me, but when it popped out at a scary boat house on a black loch jeez the hairs on the back of my neck definitely moved!! The cabin was very spooky so I decided to call it a day and headed back to the van!
