Headed back to Megget reservoir and the Cramalt Burn track that T and I previously went up to get to Dollar Law in the mist and rain back in Nov'20 but this time it was clear and just me on my lonesome. Decided against revisiting Dollar Law and instead headed for Cramalt Craig.

Even saw a golden eagle sat by the side of the track on the way up. Thought it was a strange looking broken, burnt cut-off telegraph pole until I got too close and it decided to fly off. Tried desperately to get my phone out my rucksack to take a picture but failed miserably.

At the the top of the track headed south west towards Dun Law. Very easy walking

From Dun Law it's very straightforward to get to Cramalt Craig.

Rather than go back down the track, decided to try going down via Little Craig and White Head then pass the grouse buttes on the ATV track and then over Cramalt Burn.
