Mr Sloman and the TGO Awards 2012

Delighted to see that Alan Sloman has been nominated for his campaign against Scottish windfarms. Will vote when we return Alan.

Today we have had a tootle up to Aboyne and Banchory (above) but tomorrow we'll be back on the hills. Sounds we'll have some pleasant weather too.

AlanS - everywhere we've been on this trip something's been roaring! The Glas Allt was relatively quiet though and the bothy was, unsurprisingly, locked given the time of year.

  1. I see that Banchory put up the bunting for you, Gibson.
    Quite right too.

  2. I sam enjoing your trip.

    Cycling back from Beinn Bhrotain and Monadh Mor, after burning off a couple of junior hards in front of me, the rear wheel had an explosive contact with a large rock. I ended up pushing back to Linn of Dee and the two youngsters came past me with little comment, and an air of disdain.

    The next day saw a trip to Banchory, the nearest location with a cycle shop where a new wheel was fitted with typical Scottish friendliness and willingness to oblige.
