As I was about to rejoin the landrover track, I spotted a big bird of prey which looked like an osprey since it had a light underside but I’m not 100% sure whether it was or not.
The track was easy to follow up to Glas Tulaichean and the cloud started to lift when I reached the top. I decended the grassy slopes to rejoin the path which leads to Carn an Righ.
It was very sunny and warm in the sheltered glens and I was glad of the breeze to cool me down when I reached the top. I had my lunch at the top surrounded by fantastic views and some pipits and wheatears were flying about.
I went back down from Carn an Righ and followed a good stalkers path towards Beinn Iutharn Mhor. There were good views of the Cairngorms from the summit and Beinn a Ghlo.
When I was coming back down, lots of red deer were running across the hillside and they seemed to just keep coming! Eventually some of them spotted me and they went off in the other direction.
Throughout the walk I saw lots of mountain hare, ptarmigan and grouse – I think Glenshee is probably one of the best places I have walked for seeing wildlife.
From Beinn Iutharn Mhor I went down to Loch nan Eun, past the waterfalls and then had the long walk back through Glen Taitneach in the sunshine back to the car park.

We attempted these three in thigh deep snow and only got to the summit of Glas Tulaichean before heading back.
Really strange seeing it in the summer!!!
Heading back on Tuesday to do this walk, hopefully with the same weather as you.

Thanks, it was a really good day out and I only met a couple of people all day. It's always good to have such a beautiful location to yourself.
Polly - guessing you didn't get out in the gales yesterday! Hope you have a good day when you do the route.

Sunrise on Glas Tulaichean from bike park.
Lots of black ice covered by 1" fresh powder en route up to Loch nan Eun. Then carried straight on and took the shoulder around Mam nan Carn (tight deep snow in places), down to the saddle and up to Beinn Iutharn Mhor (3 hrs). Back owards the saddle then followed the burn down then up Carn an Righ (4 hrs).
On Carn an Righ
Then off down the shoulder and straight up Glas Tulaichean to the summit (5 hrs 15).
Looking north from the summit of Glas Tulaichean.
Descent down the ridge and picked up the new(ish) hill track that returns to the base of Creag Dallaig then back down the glen to the Spittle. A great day out: hard with with difficult snow and ice in several places. Total time 7 hrs
