Loch an  t-Seilich
Gaick Lodge & Sron Bhuirich
Wonderful single track alongside Loch an Duin
Lots of Lapwing's around
Leaving civilisation
Some sun
Lots of these too, racing along with the bike and still thinking it's winter!
The Gaick Pass is one of those wonderful and remote routes in The Cairngorm area, known as 'The Mounth Roads'. I had a great bike ride from Aviemore through to Dalwhinie by way of the Gaick ( Gaig) Pass. After a warm up on the may excellent trails between Feshie Bridge and the start of Glen Trommie the scenery becomes more and more impressive with the hills becoming much steeper either side of this glen., indeed there are always avalanches through here during the winter months, despite the relatively low altitudes of the hills. No mobile phone signals here, you're on your own in more ways than one! Plenty of wildlife but not a soul seen all day. The route comes out onto the A9 at Dalnacardoch so it was another hour or so up to Dalwhinie to catch the train back to Aviemore, an excellent 85km route
