Got a new watch, so figured I'd try out the step counter - smashed the pre-set target :lol: Headed up towards Newtyle Hill, but only to check out the view from the memorial seat. Then back down and round to head up above Loch of the Lowes along the top tree line (path's a bit overgrown, sometimes disappears, but following deer tracks through the gorse works too). Making up the route as I went, I ended up doing a repeat of a loop I'd done in the summer - back around by the golf course.
Nice day for it today 8) but the air was pretty chilly.

Bench on Newtyle Hill - trees are needing trimmed as the view to the bridge is blocked :D
