It was 4 years I did the 6 Munros circle on the East side of Glenshee Ski Centre ( March 2015 in snow ), report here: https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=50308 and 3 Munros circle ( January 2015 in snow and gale ), report here: https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=49365
It was not the best forecast for sunday 6th of January 2019 by the visibility so I decided to repeat some Munros I have already done, nothing big to consume a lot of time, but nothing very short or very easy as I wanted to burn some post Christmas calories More Munros in the route to add some ascent in the walk would be great, but nothing too long because of the short daylight. I decided for Glenshee which allows the variability and combinations to combine even during the walk. I started with Carn Aosda and The Cairnwell to warm me up, then descended pathless on the slope to start the Munros on the other side of A93. Weather was not so bad, no much cold and no much windy, but misty...foggy most of the way. I felt free to climb up to Glas Maol with the open plan to do another 1 or 3 Munros, all variable depends on the time and conditions - weather and mine
Nice fresh air, sometimes clear views - between Glas Maol and Creag Leacach, foggy most of the walk, but enjoyable day in the hills. I managed the 4 there on the East side which made me total of 6 Munros that day, descended safely from Carn an Tuirc and then got to the ski centre car park before sunset - walked the last part along A93.
Good walking start for 2019 after our family New Year's Day climb on Buachaille Etive Beag in Glencoe just 5 days ago...but where is the snow ??!
