Cycled this one from Auchlean down to the bridge and over it to pick up the road then track down Glen Feshie. Alan struggled with the cycle in, firstly blaming the wind and then the Whisky he had drank on the Saturday night :crazy: We eventually reached where the track starts to climb with me helping Alan push his bike up it and encouraging him by telling him it would be worth it for the cycle back down. After about 3 km of pushing the bikes we decided to leave them at the bend below the 739m top. We now set off on foot up the track to where it ends at Meall an Uillt Chreagaich and a marker cairn marks the start of the path to the summit of the Corbett. We reached the summit just over 3 hrs after setting off and stopped of at the ruin for lunch before making our way back to the bikes with the cycle back being a lot easier than the cycle in. Alan was chuffed at that.

Maybe Alan couldnt see properly on his bike in you were in front with the white shine coming off of your legs in those shorts!

Common theme going on there. lots of folk boozing the night before they walk with you. Jimmy and Mo, Me, Alan.
Maybe trying to blank it out :D
