Keen to be in the hills. Solo if needs be.

Thursday 17/11/11 - more a historical diary entry but my longer chat was wiped on another logger by IT demons.

Mt. Keen. Guide book 3 hours 10. Author normally regards that as ambitious but mega high quality path allowed 2:35. Fit folks could do it in two hours. All on my lonesome.

Weather dry all day but threatening otherwise. Windy and cold on summit. Total time car to car exactly 5 hours. Rain came on just as boots came off. :)

Not a fan of the sycophantic royalist hideous sculpture in granite. Call me a Republican but........

Path in is a thoroughly groomed track and goes all the way up. Navigation hardly required.

Ok there may be a wee exposure issue here but the skies were definitely in a bad mood.


I mean you can just see Billy Connolly's John Brown leading Judi Dench's Vicky's horse for a wee sook. A lot of algae growing there - I'll stick to streams masel
