I had been up on the western Glenshee hills many years ago but had always been unlucky with the weather and had never had a view so on this day, on a drive home from a long weekend, the weather was so fine that I couldn't resist a short leg-stretcher over to Carn A Gheoidh. From the ski-centre car park I dashed up the horrible road in Butchart's Corrie to the col and simply followed the well-worn track over Carn nan Sac to the summit of the Munro. It was surprisingly quiet and peaceful and once away from all the ski paraphernalia, there was a sense of remoteness which seemed strange, given the proximity of the road, cafes and tows. The summit was a wonderful viewpoint on this day and I spent a while enjoying the surrounding hills.
