Early start from Perth and reached the public car park up Glen Muick. Got the gear on and we were on our way by 09:30hrs. Walking towards the Spittal we could see how overcast it was. We went through the pinewood, following the track a further 3km to the col at the head of Glen Gelder.
Once more into the clouds dear Clare!
Come on Clare.... on your feet!
Now I strongly advise you..... stick to your left!
Ah!..... I see why you said that dad.
Now I had told her not to get too triumphant once we reach the cairn, cos the highest point was a little further on. There's no telling the youth of today.
Hold on a minute, the cloud seems to be lifting....
Hey dad, is this what heavens like?
I hope so Clare, I hope so.
Let's push on to the trig point.
Ha! ha! ha! My pals will see the point of all this now.
Oh well I suppose it's back to reality..... down through the clouds.
Down there to the loch and along to the left, we'll be back to the car in an hour and a half.
Well what a day, enjoyment and elation followed by fatigue. So much so Clare didn't have any energy left to place her boots into the car. I wonder if they are still sitting in the car park waiting for our return visit?
Never mind, a small price to pay.

"its too long"
"My feet hurt"
"this is boring"
"yeah, the hills... so what like..."
"wish I had my mp3"
"I'm being eaten alive by all the bugs"
"want me x-box"
"hate me mum for making me do this"
I'm sure Clare was a lot better than this. My Andrew's hill walking days kinda started and ended in one go

She also likes to get back in time if her boyfriends football team have a home game.
