A few weekends ago I met up with my family for an adventure weekend based in Braemar. This is the story of our walking and packrafting trip.
For a change we were having a slightly tame adventure and staying in a guest house – the lovely Callater Lodge in Braemar. Luckily Julian and Katy, the owners, are whiskey experts so any hardship about staying in a building was quickly subdued.
The Dee is a lovely river to paddle, we went from Victoria Bridge to Invercauld with a good selection of birdlife and exciting rapids at the end.
