Whilst stopping in Edingburugh for a week id decided to do 6 Munros on the right of the A93 to give my tally a boost :) . I arrived at the car park 2 Km before the Glenshee ski center at 8am. I set of down the short grassy bank from the car park adjusting my walking pole as i went then slipped and slid down the bank in the splits position i thought my walk was over before it had began as i thought id torn my hamstring :( however after a 10 min sit down and a brew the pain had eased so decided to carry on heading SE along the Allt Coire a Bhathiach and up to the col between Meall Gorm and Creag Leacach
Then headed NE to Creag Leacach summit with the hamstring becoming a little tender again and i was thinking i would probably have to rethink my plans as progress was fairly slow
so i headed for Meall Odhar rather disappointed i reached the road just up from the ski center and had some sandwiches and a brew the leg now feeling fine bloomin typical :roll: so then thought its only short pull up to Cairnwell so decided to give it a go
i was surprised how close Carn Aosda was
so headed off northwards passed Loch Vrotachan
to the summit of Carn Aosda
i decended down along the ski tow run to a near deserted ski center and along the A93 to the car park
