Cyclists at Parkburn 
This year we have had many cyclists staying at Parkburn. We have a large garage for overnight secure storage of cycles and I am willing to do laundry at an agreed price.

Karen Bennett from West Sussex was cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats for Maccmillan Cancer Charity.This is a gruesome challenge especially with the fickle Scottish landscape and even more fickle Scottish weather.

Steve Townsley from Cumbria was out to enjoy the rigors of cycling the Scottish countryside.He has a lot of experience of long distance cycling.I hope he returns to Parkburn on one of his future cycle runs.Look out for his blue tail!!

Amelia, Andrew and Mark were canoeing with others on the west coast of Scotland. Despite the weather they accomplished all they set out to do. I must say I was very impressed with how Amelia very expertly backed out the landrover and canoe trailer from our carpark at an angle and first time! No stress !!!

Sandy and Dave flew up to Inverness from Luton and hired a car for their three day break in Strathspey. They also successfully tracked the NASA Space Station on Tuesday night as the sky was clear and conditions good for a sighting.
You can find out when you can best view the Station if you follow this link.

Husky sledding in Cairngorm Jan 2010 
There was another meeting for Cairngorm Husky Sledding Competitions in January. This year the huskies were able to use the sleds instead of wheels because there was enough snow. The event attracts lots of visitors and the conditions were ideal for sledding, skiing, togganning and photography.
