On a spring sunny day Glen Tanar seems to be the place to be i have been a few time at this time a year and
always seems to look great in spring as long as they are nae burning heather that is.

Thought a would give Baudy Meg a try using the same route ChrisW posted a couple years back. This is a great walk and am surprised more folk have nae posted reports on it i enjoyed it more than mount keen as the views are better. Okay you dinae get a blue mark on the hill bagging map but who cares it is still well worth doing.

Cracking day just a base layer and t shirt. :D
