Victor Meldrew has long extolled the virtues of Glen Affric. I finally managed to pay the wonderful glen a visit this week, and have discovered the reasons for his adulation. As I drove into the glen early on Monday morning, I was met by red deer on the road, and a stunning rainbow which moved through the trees as I drove. This led the way to a wonderful day in majestic hills (and the ravages of the ghastly midgie!).
