Spent the weekend in Braemar and wanted to show my friend how enjoyable these hills can be as she's never done any, sadly she said if she never does another hike in her life she won't be too sad I failed!
I loved it, nice easy climb, beautiful views minus the building in the way at the summit. Although a fairly long walk back along riverside with aching feet by then! Extremely cold wind, so well wrapped up. Still a little snow in places which the dogs loved. Overall a really enjoyable wee hill.
