Peter went into the hill country

This is the nearest I got to the peaks of the Cairngorms - not bad, given I was on a mountain bike. I know that one of the servers at Westminster Cathedral (Michael White) got to the top. However, I have a feeling he 'cheated' and used the funicular railway for the last mile. I must try it sometime, as I am told the view from the top is fantastic - on a clear day!

The building near the peak is the 'station' for the funicular railway. It boasts the highest restaurant in the UK! You can just about make out the track of the funicular railway in my last photo (posting of 4 June). Todays photo was taken on Friday 1 June - note that all the snow present on Monday 28 May has melted.
