After a few days oh bad hay fever ah decided to pop up to tarland and try the Pressendye circuit, the forecast was a bit dodgy but that seems the way it is most days.

Any way this is the first Graham I have done and it turns out it is a wee cracker of a loop with great views of the surrounding hills and was also quite dry making for good walking conditions :D :D

Am glad I did go as it turns out there is another application just went in for windmills on the face of Pressendye this is the 3rd time going by a notice board I come across and objections had to be in to Aberdeen council by the 26th July :-x :-x

How anyone can erect that monstrosities on a braw wee hill like this in a scenic area beggars believe but there you are, :crazy: :crazy:

When I looked over to Morven I was thinking I should have started early and done both as it is only a short drive away and both could probably be done in 9 hours or so and there is a hotel in Tarland square where I parked which looks tempting for a quick refreshment :D :D

still a great wee circuit on it's own IMHO.
