I was out again today and was very lucky with the weather. A bright start which wasn't too cold this morning but this afternoon the clouds came in and we got a couple of rain showers. One on the top was snow which was not too bad but got caught just before getting back to the car by rain.
Anyway I was out on Mt Battock today, a lovely gently rounded hill up in the Angus Glens. We went up from Millden Lodge in Glen Esk, land rover tracks all the way except on the very top.

On the way up
The estate workers were busy today working on the shooting butts but apart from them only saw one other person as we got back to the car.
Magicical view NW across miles of hills and checkered grouse moors toward the Balmoral estate which explains the partridges, grouse and pheasant that we saw. We had lunch at Pt. 717 and then onto the top with its trig point and shelter. Didn't tarry as it was misty and chilly

Brought my sister out today, she is younger than me but she did really well. Chips in Forfar on the way home.
