The sun returned here on Sunday...a good day to get the shorts on....first time since Sutherland two months ago!... and head for the higher ground.
Using the goatrack out of the Sneachda coire is one of the many ways to reach the high ground.
Monday was spent on the recovery of G-CKHF. This glider came down at 850 metres on the North side of Geall Charn....the Sgorans one. It was thought that by adding a couple of wheels to the glider that we could manage to control the descent. It did not work so it became three separate loads of two wings and a battered fusilage. Traversing the hillside to find the most suitable vegetated slope down which to slide the three main parts. A trip to puratory with eight separate stages and millions of biting insects to ward-off.
