Set of on Sunday arriving at the car park 8.30am with clear sky all the way getting to Mount Keen around 10.30am. It was a nice easy walk through the Glen Tanar forest and finally coming round to the base of Keen. After having a bite to eat set off arriving at the summit around 12 getting excellent views of Lochnagar. After 20 mins decided to make my way back down to base and have something to eat again. Finally thought I better start the long haul back to the car, made it even worse when people were passing on there bikes wishing I had mine only bad point really other than that a good day.
