April: Rehabilitation was the focus and handcycling from Badaguish to An Lochan Uaine in the Cairngorm National Park was perfect


May: Working on a bit of Yew to make a table


June: Summer solstice microadventure in the Pentlands.  MTB to Threipmuir reservior, swam across (with croc lilo), then hiked up hill for a wild camp


July: Tiree – my haven. Perfect weather, lots of water action and topped off with the Tiree Music Festival. Always special


August: Some chums were running the Isla half marathon so made a trip of it.  Wonderful campsite amongst the sand dunes at Kintra
