another quicky TR and there just aren't enough hours in the day!

Spent a beautiful autumnal day on the White Mounth Circuit, surrounding by magnificent views and the sound of rutting stags. We took the WH route up, giving a glorious introdution to those cliffs of Lochnagar! Weather was great, clear,sunny, cool and breezy. A very long day, but with a great feeling of isolation as we never seen many people past the busy Lochnagar summit. Interesting plane wreckage on the summit slopes of Carn an t-Stagairt Mor. Particularly found that the walk back from Broad Cairn to the car park at the Spittal of Glenmuick was a killer on my little legs :( Although long the whole walk is fairly straightforward. Would highly recomment taking a wee detour up Meickle Pap...the views over the lochan and cliffs and worth it a hundred times over!One of my best days yet...

hope you enjoy the pics...
