a. Wander around Bennachie
Keita Ikeuchi and Mihoko Mori launched and Wander in 2011. This young Japanese company specialise in outdoor clothing using high performance, technical and breathable fabrics. As this is season one for us with the brand we though it good to showcase a few of the garments around the “Back O’ Bennachie”.
Bennachie is a range of hills near Aberdeen which has several tops of which the one that stands out in the landscape is Mither Tap (518m) with its Iron Age Fort on the summit. Some believe that the area was the site of the great battle known as Mons Graupius when the Romans fought the Caledonian army in the year AD83.
At this time of year the colours are fresh and green and with the sun shining and the sounds of the flowing river and bird song it is great to get away from the city and have a little wander.
