It's always spectacular to look across the tops of the Cairngorm mountains. This was a trial last summer; a guided walk of the alpine top of Cairngorm, run by the ranger service. After a ride up in the funicular railway, a small group of walkers left the Ptarmigan top station, to walk to the mountain top (not far, not hard) and learn about the special environment, the ecological measures taken to protect the flora and fauna, and the local life including visitor management. The restaurant serves a warm meal which was nice after the chilly experience we had.
I like to take visiting friends on a walk through a cluster of modern university buildings, just outside the main city area of Cambridge. From West Road university library through to Sedgewick Street. Many interesting buildings. Faculty of Divinity by Ted Cullinun, Faculty of Law by Foster, Faculty of Music by Lewlie Martin, Faculty of History by Stirling, Faculty of English by Allies and Morrison.
Walk down Garret Hostel Lane from Trinity Street in the centre of Cambridge. Cross over the river and cross Queens Street at the lights. Continue up the footpath until you reach the university library. Walk across the front of the university and continue on a straight path through the buildings, until you reach Sedgewick Street and then turn left back into the town for pubs and cafes.
