Walked today in beautiful sunshine amidst the lying snow making the hills glisten.
Extended to take in two nearby tops as far as Carn Deag before tackling the descent from and second part of the circuit.

This is a lovely circuit, not difficult and easily extended. If transport is available can also cross the high moor to finish at the bridge near Torbeg in the Ballater section of A939.
My photos do no justice- sorry.

All paths are clear to follow and spotted mountain hare which was in view twice😊
Took our time as it was bright and warm to stop for lunch on Geallaig hill. Recommended especially on clear day as views are brilliant
