Parked early in the usual car park just north of Auchlean in Glen Feshie. The weather wasn’t looking too promising for today but was supposed to improve for tomorrow.
GPS track - reduced to 500 waypoints for WH
Walked down the road to Auchlean and then continued down the track past the woods to the east of the river.

I too saw that "standing stone” on the west flank of Bienn Bhrotain. It looked to me that someone had put the stone in this position and then packed rocks round its base to keep it upright.
As for the b****** midges they are the main reason I don't go on our walking club meets to the west coast during the summer. We still get them here in the east but [usually] not in so great a number. Looks like this has been an exceptionally bad year for this blight.

Slow down though, only back in January your count was similar to mine
