Today it came together. I had an entertaining drive down, picking up an interesting hitchhiker en-route. He informed me that he was heading to Edinburgh to sow his seeds! Well I dropped in at Aviemore and wished him well on that quest!

It wasn't long before I got to the junction and swung a left starting the climb up the landrover track that would eventually lead to the munro Mullach Clach A' Bhlair.
The top was very flat as expected with great 360 degree views.... What goes up must come down and the descent was a blast dropping about 2000 feet in one go on a loose track - wow, I nearly boiled my brakes and they were glowing when I got back down to the strath (valley).
I had a quick paddle in the river before blasting the single track back to the van, a very satisfying ride, definitely worth doing on a mt bike.
