Starting at the Linn of Dee car park at 8am, there was already a few cars about and folk getting ready for biking, hiking and all activities. I got myself prepared, popped £2.00 in the car park machine and off I went. Weather was cool with a slight north westerly breeze. The cloud was broken but kissing the munro tops.
A good 4x4 track made the walk into Glen Luibeg pleasant. In no time I arrived at the derelict Derry Lodge. The first time here I took the interest in reading the information board on the history of the building. In the meantime a cheeky chaffinch was at my feet looking for food.
Arriving at the Luibeg Burn ford I considered crossing but thought the better of it. Obviously with the snow melt it would be high enough to be risky... I'll avoid the wet feet.
As I crossed the burn I was at the foot of Carn a'Mhaim, a little further along the path I divided off to the right and a gentle walk became a steep climb. The other munros in the area started coming into view as I was reaching the summit.

What a change in conditions from when I passed through Tuesday to get to Linn of Dee.
