Canny see us visiting these two any time soon :lol: A walk of about 5 miles took us into the ruined lodge then up slippy,wet ,heathery hill side to Carn Bhac,past the grouse butts where i seen rutting stags havin' a battle .Path improved further up and got to the top in about 3 and half hours.Got Senga's tattie and leek soup heated up for the boys and when they made the top Kev had decided he'd had enough,canny say i blamed him as the peat hags betwween the hills looked none too appealing :( So me and Ian set off toward Iutharn Mhor over the hags and then up the steep stony slopes to the top.About 2 o clock when we set off down the steep slippy slope towards the ruins again ,another breather there and then along the 5 miles back to the car :roll: Quick pint in Braemar then home to a waiting Ashmaan(again :lol: ).Kind of enjoyed the day,though unlikely these hills will ever see our boots again,just as well the weather was decent cos this would have been a major trial in the wind and rain.Good company on this walk was provided by Ian,Kev and Jake :thumbup:

Like the photo of Kevin on the top, it reminded me of the 1970's Mash advert with the Martians :lol:

Gordie ,there is no real avoiding the peat hags,considering the rain we had last week i suppose it could have been worse,at no point did we sink in to the bogs,most of the time we could hop across the grassy tufts.From Carn Bhac head south west towards the 920 metre point and then head south,probably take you about half an hour before you reach the steep slope(but dry) of Iutharn Mhor.I've put a gps track on to show our route :thumbup:
