Millbuies

When we were up at Fochabers the other weekend, we were hampered by the rain quite a bit, but we managed to catch a break on the Saturday, so headed to Millbuies to take a stroll around the loch.

There’s not much else unless you fancy a spot of fishing, but the loch and surrounding areas were extremely peaceful, and the sun was out, so we took some time to chill when we were halfway around.

Sadly, you have to navigate this road to get to the Spittal of Glen Muick car park where you get access to Loch Muick, and the nearby Lochnagar.
