A drover
After last weeks exploits in the wilds of Kintail it was to the serenity of Glen Devon and a couple of wee hills .The first target of the day was Lendrick I parked at the brige on the Dunning road took a look at the map only route to be taken straight up picked up a faint atv track whick took us almost to the top I picked up a faint outline of a trig point through the murk target reached there is also a small cairn 456m .No views only one option about turn and back to the car . Time taken 1hr 15min distance 4km doddle.
The next target Innerdownie parked off at the castlehill reservoir decided to head up Glenquey for a longer route followed the road up to the dam then onto the old drovers track along the reservoir. Looked for the maidens well gave up . Took a route up to Bentie Knowe followed the deer fence to the top of the hill and made my way onto Innerdownie keeping the Glen Sherrup woods on the left and reached the cairn a quick brew and followed the hill path down to Burnfoot then back to the car time taken 2hr 30min distance 9.5km
All in all a nice day out a nice slow daunder

Nice one, I had a cheeky quick trip to Meall Buidhe. Did you have to do a walk to keep the peace with Jake.

Nice to see those two again from a different perspective. I liked Innerdownie. Wasn't overly fussed for Lendrick Hill though. Good to see what Glenquey Reservoir looks like too - it was pitch dark when I walked out on that track.
