We set off from the Glenshee ski resort to do 6 Munro's, there was a bonus starting at the ski centre which was at 2100 feet, but as we walked away from the ski centre to join the path for Carn an Tuirc the height dropped to 1700 feet.

The weather was perfect sunny with a breeze to keep us cool, the walking was all good some patches of snow on the hills but nothing that would have any impact on the walk, as the day went on the clouds started to gather but we were lucky there wasn't any rain to ruin the day. The wildlife was as good as it gets for me, Golden Plovers, Dotterel, Ravens Mountain Hares and Red Grouse galore, an added bonus was at least 1 Black Grouse possibly 2.

The only negative point on the day was the walk back to the car along the main road.
