    It was actually surprising good cycling conditions (avoiding the deadly ice patches) as I went round by Geal Charn on the Ardverikie Estate. I’m a fan of cycling 4 x 4 tracks to access hills but personally I’ve never cycled into the Lochan as it strangely feels like cheating. More days like today please!
