Great walk through the glen with Denny dog, leading the way (as usual). Lovely views back down the glen after our ascent near the waterfall. Lots of wildlife on view, including grouse, phtarmigans, stoats and hares but sadly on this ocassion...no eagles. Hopefully next time? Nice weather on Mayar plateau and walk down and over to Driesh. However, weather closed in very quickly on top of Driesh, where Denny and I took shelter at trig point. We enjoyed our chicken tikka masala, whilst watching the hares bouncing across the top. Decended Driesh via unorthodox route as fog closed in. Nevertheless, managed to get back on to the track and into the forrest. Celebration snicker shared with Denny as we sauntered back to the farm and car park...felt great to have completed walk and missed the rain. :D
