The weather was fabulous (apart from a bit of clag in the early morning, which just served to add a bit of contrast) and the Glen Rosa Horseshoe is simply mind-blowing - topped only by the Cuillin, and possibly Torridon. Yes, I loved it... :D :D :D

That is a long wander...

Glen Lyon is one of my favourite places, a great spot.

Do please report the 'private' sign on the bridge to Perth & Kinross Access Officer - the gentleman who 'owns' that land is a real pain, and they need more evidence of his difficulty. He would regularly shout at and divert groups from our outdoor centre, walking on tracks, once even not on his land(!), claiming private land and that access is closed as it was spring/summer/wednesday/cup of tea time....

Takes some grit, determination and mental strength to do that.
Respect and cheers for the report.
