Managed to get round to doing a December walk at last, albeit a short one. A pleasant surprise though with good views of the surroundings.

Nice day for it!!

I love the low sunlight photography at this time of year and you got some good shots.

Looking back, it was 7 years ago I did Ben Rinnes then the two Convals, not the highest of hills but as always in Aberdeenshire great views from each one.

I genuinely didn't think I would enjoy it too much but it was quite a good walk and very decent views. Having to get used to the thought of Aberdeenshire + 5 miles only now, of course.
