Aviemore Trade Show

That's it over for another year. Our annual trip with the trailer tent up to Aviemore in the Cairngorm Highlands for the Scottish Trade Show.
We always stay at the Glen More campsite on the shores of Loch Morlich. This was last year's image. Just beautiful and so peaceful.
We didn't have quite such a colourful sunset this year, but beautiful in its own right.

And this was the view from our trailer tent. Wonderful to wake up to.
As for the Trade Show itself, well it was quiet. It was pretty much as expected I suppose. It has never been a very busy show for one reason or another, but I did meet some new potential customers and took some orders which probably made it worthwhile.
However, socially it was great success. Bob took himself off up the hills as usual, and I spent three days in the hall chatting and gossiping. I don't mind that at all.
We  had very sociable evenings too, thanks to Sacha and Hayden , friends and fellow exhibitors who were staying at the campsite as well. Red wine, crisps, Ben and Jerry's ice cream and lots of laughs. We sat at the lochside till the wee small hours much to the annoyance of a pair of courting ducks.
It was home again yesterday, and a text from Laura to say they had landed back at Heathrow, safe and sound after their world adventure.
This was their last port of call - Shanghai.
We're looking forward to seeing them soon, maybe in a couple of days with a bit of luck. I think Greg has about 50,000 photos to show us!
Well, back to work, I suppose.


  1. Looks like a lovely setting and I am happy your children are home safe....;-)

  2. It looks like it was a really nice area and a nice serene experience. I hope it was like it looks!

  3. about one year ago i visited loch morlich, and i loved it... the third picture looks really like the place where i was. even the weather's the same :) you're absolutely right if you say that it was wonderful and peaceful... one day i will return to this place...
