Another corbett today .Just me and Steve then a very early phone call from Pigeon so the three of us and jake headed off from the car park at 0800hrs .A cold wind blowing but a clearish sky looks like being another good day in the perthshire hills .
This was as per the WH route . Up to the dam then followed the track up hill to the Y junction took the left fork then over the fields covered in a light snowfall from the previous night . Crossed the burn just above the bridge and headed up to the fence . Once again us slow coaches following in the footsteps of the greater legged pidg over the fence then picked up an atv track . Over the first wee lump then up to Meall Dubh Mor . Then over the frozen peathags to the base of Creag Uchdag then straight up to the trig point .
After the Bailley photo shoot and an excellant survey of perthshires finest , hills done and those to do , it was back down to the beallach then picked out a route downto the sheep pen at the loch . We stopped short in a nice sheltered area and had a brew and a bite to eat . By the time we got down to the loch it was layers off t shirt weather followed the sheep track back to the dam then the walk back in
By the time we got back the car park was full and the verges packed as well . Must have been going up Chonzies tourist route our hill was empty . The only thing left to do now after a good day on the hills was the customary pint of foaming alcohol in the Royal in Comrie BRAW
