Hoping to head up Thursday too but haven’t been out in the hills all winter. Maybe do the Cairnwell hills which might be more interesting with a bit of snow though not too much hopefully.

I`ve done two of the Cairwell trio so that may be a shout for Friday to get the third one done and assess the conditions

I'm currently looking at mopping up some Marilyns and probably some missed Munro tops whether it be Glenshee or from Linn of Dee


Tentatively:
- East and west ridges of Clunie Water, starting at Braemar - they look great on the map, and include a couple of Corbetts.
- Head of Glen Clova, including Driesh & Mayar, starting somewhere around Wheen and finishing at Acharn, closing the loop by bike. Again, from the map and others' pics, looks like a superb place.
- Lochnagar. Route not yet really fixed, but plan to include Munros.

Happy if anyone interested in joining me.

If the weather plays ball then I plan to do Beinn a'Bhuird & Ben Avon on the Saturday. It looks a long tough day out though and will therefore be dependent on tolerable weather.

On the way home on Sunday I plan to get An Socach ticked off.

I also plan to be on the winning quiz team 8) :lol:
