My mini-break in Perthshire began with a visit to some great old friends in Perthh - Laura (above), Rob and their children Emily and Finlay. Laura was studying medicine at Aberdeen University when I was doing my Phd so we've known each other for a few years now though sometimes struggle to find opportunities to meet up. When we came back to Scotland in 2007 they very kindly lent us their van, a Ford Freda coincidentally, with which we travelled round the north of Scotland. Laura and Rob also love the outdoors and take part in a number of sporting events. Rob's currently training for a 70-mile closed road cycle race in May. Good luck Rob!
