Had a nice walk up Broad Cairn, nice except for those zig-zags, not going up and down those in the same day again in a hurry, my thighs are still on fire lol. Some decent maintenance done on the road up, almost up to the boulder field, which on a very wet and windy walk was welcome. Saw a few Red Grouse and a few Hares, but little else, but at times visibility was probably down to around a 100 metres. Tried adding some images, but they are too large for this site.
