We had a cracking day on the hills, with the weather being very kind to us (almost :wink: ), the photos make it look like we should be streatched out on the slops sun bathing, but the wind was gusting at 30mph on the top, chuck in the wind chill which was -15c, I am sure Pigeon will be add a more detailed report for this one, so I say no more and just add some pics :D (a video clip will be added later once I have edited it)

I once hitched a lift from Coylum Bridge to Ryvoan with a bloke who had been a bulldozer driver in the team that built those tracks in the Cairngorms, in the late 40s and 50s. He was most miffed that people are now removing the tracks he built !

Enjoyed that especially the photos - I do like Glen Feshie and Loch Einich but generally am only up there in summer so good to see in autumn/winter colours. Looks like a great day was had by all - cheers :)
