A couple of Clashindarroch outliers

These two tumps had been annoying me for a while. I'd put off doing them because I thought they were ripe for a bike assault, but didn't want Harvey to have to run with the bikes. In the end we did both from the Clashindarroch road and H enjoyed the trip and seemed to be in better shape than us. Par...

Torr Alvie - The 5th Duke of Gordon's Memorial

On my way to the annual RAF Mountain Rescue reunion in Newtonmore. The late afternoon sun had started to keek below the clouds, which drew me like a magnet to this wee tump. Risked the wrath of the Dalraddy Caravan Park folks by parking on their double yellow lines. Reasoned that, being off-season, ...

A few more more Tumps near Huntly

The weather looked iffy, but the BBC simulations seemed to show lots of rain around this area, however, a wee hole in the inclement bits gave us hope, so we decided to believe the met folks and risk it. With Harvey's dad still in UAE, we picked him up with the stuff Louise had laid out and headed up...

Some Strathbogie Tumps

A crisp Friday morn, to pick up Harvey and head up to Huntly behind a big draft malt carrier. Sun shining like a searchlight in my rear view mirror. After a wee overshoot, we parked up at the end of the track into the fields up to Aswanley. We were just tooling up when the farmer drove down the road...

Some Banchory Tumps

Should've been out yesterday - weatherwise, but with Harvey's folks in Denmark, decided to stick with tradition and go on thurs and hope the rain cleared before lunch - which it did. Picked up GordonC at the Banchory caravan park where he was shaking down his van, and being a good Aberdonian, making...

Some Clashindarroch Tumps

Hadn't been on the hill for a fortnight as we'd been to a funeral in Skipton with the Bradshaws and had stayed for a few days - so an easy day planned. It was due to be hot as well, so we had to pace ourselves. GordonC had toyed with the idea of knocking off the last of the Grey corries from Glen Ne...
