Grant and Johnny in Kingussie, January, 2018Photographed by Grant O'Brien
Kingussie (pronounced Kinyousee) is a small village on the Edinburgh/Perth/Inverness railway line. It is a pleasant railway journey to get there
from Edinburgh and takes about 3 hours of beautiful countryside. It is near Aviemore the popular hiking and skiing resort,
but far enough away that it is still very quiet and somewhat forgotten. There is a number of good B&B's there and the restaurants are mostly
ordinary, although with one excellent eating hole (unfortunately closed in winter). There are also lots of walks, hikes and cycling tracks nearby.
It is an excellent spot for a few days off: we go there often. But I don't think we've ever seen it as beautiful as it was this January!
