Just me,sunshine & solitude.Nothing like the distance myself,Jonny616 & Scottish Leaf had done just 2 weeks ago but none the less just as enjoyable,and somewhat unexpected on this one.The chance to get this done came about late on Saturday night when I found out my son-in-law Alan S was planning and taking his 2 wee ones up to Glenshee to climb Carn Aosda,hmmmmmmm a wee plan now in my head,can you drop me in Glen Clunie and pick me up once the weans have had there day out,I nae bother was the answer.............brilliant and the weather was mighty fine into the bargain,so after only climbing 4 Munros in over a year here I was on my 3rd one in just over 2 weeks,hope you all enjoy the pictures half as much as I enjoyed the walk.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Well Done!

I was one of the group of seven that you passed on your way off of An Socach. We were still on the way up.

A good day to be out on the hills.

Our photos are posted on our Facebook page if you wish to have a look.

An another one! You’re definitely getting back into the swing of it.
It seems that after your long absence from the hills, the clag has decided to leave you alone. :D
