Hi ALL
Planned this walk last saturday with Alec and Jim wee planned to do the six looked at the route read the reports didn't look that hard the only thing was the walk back up the road to the car only took one :lol:.

Set off at 5.30 for the 2hr.30mins drive according to the AA Route so 8am in the top carpark was there for 7.35
still dark sat in the car to get ready because the wind was hard and cold the MWIS say's 25-35mph at the top of the hills christ it was that at the car set of at 8am to nice clear sky's. of over the bridge followed the path quite boggy most of the way till we started to climb

Well done on making the four. I was in Glenshee on Tuesday & was suprised how windy it was compared to the forecast. You'll pick the other two up easy enough

Wait a minute!!!!! When was this walk done???? It says TODAY but there is also a reference to SATURDAY. Last Saturday???? No matter. All I'm saying is that if it was anytime in the last week, it's the biggest case of "rubbing it in" that I've ever seen on here! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
