Loch Avon, at the heart of the Cairngorms. Day 7 and it still wasn't raining. It was snowing. It would have been a laugh to bivvy down behind this boulder, with the spray from the loch flying overhead. But actually the Fords of Avon refuge (inset) was soggy and squalid enough to count as authentic adventure in its own right.
