We took the scenic route back from Scone Palace, stopping on the way for a relaxed stroll in Morrone Birkwood, a nature reserve near Braemar.
After the rigorous discipline of the competition ring, it was time to cut loose.
So I posed nicely for one photo….
…and then merrily went exploring….
…leaving Gail to savour the beauty of the Cairngorm landscape.
I hope you like it too.
