Just something close to keep the leg muscles going.
Set off from Tarland on a fairly warm afternoon (15degrees). Set a good pace because I fancied a bit of a sweat.
Walk took 3hrs35 with a couple of stops to sort out a blister on my right heel. Can't understand wh that came up after doing so many miles this week already.

Suprised by how much cooler it was on the hill than down below grabbed my fleece for the first time this year.
