Was ment to go out on saturday with pigeon but watching the pennies the dog pestering me all day Watched the baseball saturday night clocks went back woke up at 6am dog still annoying me pawing at the pack whineing at the door no peace decided on some where local Creiff here we come Auchnafree hill .
Got to the carpark booted and suited at 9am for the off instead of doing the WH route we turned right along the landrover track and walked for about 2km before striking up the hill to the cairn at 551m. Staying on the lani track we headed onto Choinneachain hill cairn 787m the path then went over the top on Ton Eich and onto the target for the day got there at 1215hrs . No hanging about went and visited the wee cairn a quick brew then back followed the track down off the hill to the main track running along Loch turret back to the car park Got back at 1400hrs a nice bottle of bud was waiting now I hope the dog shuts up untill Kintail this weekend
