Sluie Woods and Gorge, River Findhorn.

River Findhorn, Sluie Woods

A perfect Sunday afternoon walk with Rafe.

River Findhorn, Sluie Woods

We parked at the Sluie Walks car park (NJ013526) and followed the waymarked route down to the path along the top of the gorge.

The trees were at their autumn best - glorious colours as far as the eye could see.

Gorge, Sluie Woods

There were signs warning of dangerous cliffs and to keep dogs and children under close control, but the path was wide and Rafe is used to steep drops. But, if we'd had small children with us, we might well have been keeping them very close !!

We continued along the gorge beyond the waymarked route for a while, enjoying the views and the colourful trees.

Rafe was in his element - back in the woods.

We'll be back..... when winter has stripped the trees bare for better views of the gorge..... and after rain or snow melt - the river will be spectacular.....

Setting off from Glen Feshie - it was chilly - before the sun had a chance to peep over the hills...  Off we go! Jim - Setting off near Auch...
