Believe it or not this is a beach in Scotland!
Sometimes good things come from bad. On last summer's Scottish tour in May we were meant to visit the Cairngorm Mountains but our trip up on the mountain railway was cancelled. Our Aviemore driver suggested he take us to the Glenmore Visitor Centre as there was a forest for walks, a beach, reindeer centre & a decent cafe in case the weather changed.
I had never been to this lovely place and to be honest although I did enjoy my previous year's trip up the mountain railway even though we needed ski jackets, woolly hats & gloves at the top. This was a different & lovely experience being on a beach in Scotland surrounded by the Cairngorm Mountains.
The weather helped too as it was a very pleasant sunny day. Lovely!
