Yup, we were a bit gobsmacked when we heard they'd ended up in the Linn of Dee. They'd left their car at the car park at the base of the funicular up Cairn Gorm so, by road, that puts them 69 miles away from their start point. Given their lack of preparedness I rather hope MRT made them take a taxi!
