Myself and four friends met at Glenshee for our first outing in over two years. Getting out in the hills was great after three months of lockdown. The weather turned out better than we expected, although it was a windy day we also had a lot of sun. These hills provided great views across the Cairngorms in all directions. It was a long but pleasant plateau walk with most of the hard work done in the first hour with the ascent to Carn an Tuirc and much of the walk in (in summer at least) is on good tracks and springy grass.
