Day 5 up north
Weather wasn't to be great today. I left forestway and drove along to the parking area and sat and sat and sat. Rain finally eased and I put the waterproofs on and off I went - up that wet boggy hillside!!!
Not much to add about this hill
Views of the fannichs in front cane and went in the mist , but at least the rain had eased off.
Started descending and as per WH, you can see the bogs and hags in front. Steer left/south and round them and eventually the track and gate cone into view.
Bonus - the rain came on all the way back to the car!!!
Met a lad in his camper who was collecting driftwood. Got talking hills and canoeing ( which he was into) and he mentioned Alan Mullin whom I'd not heard off. Looked him up on line- interesting..
Anyway I'd one more day off but decided to head south and back home. Gubbed now after 5 days, and I felt a twinge in my left knee. Time for a rest, bath and a decent meal. I'll be back up north next month before the clocks go back so one less day wont matter.
Cheers
