There was miles of this!

Just one recommendation - the little path to the west is a bit fiddly but cuts out a lot of quagmire.

It looked as if the summit ridge would be good on a better day. If it's foul, the post office tea room at Bridge of Balgie does good soups if you need to warm up afterwards. Have a good day.
