Route description: Corrie Fee, Glen Clova

The path through the forest had thick snow but luckily a 4x4 or large vehicle left tyre prints which were much easier to walk along and follow. Before long we arrived at Corrie Fee,it is a place you really need to see in person as photos never seem to do it justice, my friends reaction was wow when we stepped out of the forest.
We thought we would head to the waterfall but this is as far as we got as the wing was blowing, the snow was thick and my dog wasn't amused!
It really is such a wonderful place to visit with not much effort
The wind was starting to pick up now so we didn't wait around long and started to quickly head back towards the car park.
Penny at Corrie Fee
Back through the forest and back to the car
Wanting back to the warm car
Lots of big icicles
biscuit time back at the car
As I said, it is a place you really need to see to full appreciate and it was wonderful seeing it covered in snow.

I know, I think plan B worked out better than plan A would have It is a beautiful area. I have been there in the summer too just as the heather was starting to bloom and again last summer when I was heading up Mayar and Dreish but it wasn't such a pleasant day.

Nice to meet you too and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your walk. We made it up to Ben Cleuch and back round by Andrew Gannel, was glad to get picked up in Tillicoultry though! She needs her ultra warm coat in snowy conditions these days

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.
She has had this coat for a few years now, someone on a whippet forum used to make them, it is very warm and snug. She also has a lighter weight fleece from equefleece which is good as offers a bit more free movement. There is probably somewhere online that does very similar coats
