It was a busy day on Ben Avon today. Walkers, runners and cyclists were all out enjoying the sun.
Today was the last forecasting day of Season 20-21, a strange and interesting season! A big thanks to Braemar Mountain Rescue Team, Police Scotland, Glenshee Ski Centre, Balmoral Estate, Mar Lodge Estate and Invercauld Estate.
Enjoy the summer!

    Thanks to everyone at SAIS for your tireless work and great photos.
    As a resident of Aberdeen city the season has been lost due to the travel restrictions, however your daily blogs have been great.
    Enjoy your summer.
