Started from the car park in Amulree, got on the bike, cycled down the road over the bridge and took a left through the farm to pick up the track running through Glen Fender.I left the bike when the track became steep and took to the slopes of Beinn Liath and then over to Meall Dearg. On return i stayed on the track to Milton and joined the road back to Amulree.

Nice little report. I'm keeping this localish one for when the snow keeps me off the high ground.

They're still building the Griffin wind farm. The delivery of the blades keep setting me back every time I'm headed up the A9 for to the Cairngorms to do some ambling about.
