Cairngorm - three lochs
Around lunchtime we headed to Loch Morlich which sits surrounded by trees (and a caravan site) with views towards Cairngorm. The trees were mainly pine and were picturesquely draped with green lichen. It was very misty at the end of the loch and not really terribly scenic. It's shore comprised of a gritty sand which exposed the roots of the trees.
We moved from here to Loch Garten where we parked and walked though pine forest to a wonderful little loch called Loch Malachie which contained a number of dead trees. As the sky darkened this was a photographers paradise
