Climbed these two hills on Easter Sunday. Lovely day for walking. Some great views, No Pictures as i left my camera at home. Hopefully be able to get some off friend Alan. Parked the car at Baddoch, just North of the Ski centre at Glenshee. Used the bikes to cycle a few km's along a good landrover track. There was a field of 5 white ponnies that we passed through, stunning looking animals. I presume they are used by the game keeper for shooting parties. Left our bikes at a small burn that joined Baddoch Burn. We then walked up good tracks to Socach Mor with a good carn, then on up onto An Socach, once on on top, we came to a summit shelter, it was then we realised, that the true summit was around 2.5km to the west. We soon made it there, and decided to make a direct route to Carn Bhac, though we had to scramble down some steep scree slopes, and crossed a few small burns.
