A fairly non eventful walk up Mt Keen on a day off uni. A nice walk up Glen Esk reaching the Queen's Well, then up to Mt Keen.
I saw an adder for the first time in my life, it was a juvenile at about 15/20 cm in length, but it was unfortunately lying dead on the dirt road up Mt Keen.
A cracking September's day with the sun shining, albeit with 2 brief showers on the walk.
I reached the summit just as a group were leaving, one of the women in the group having just compleated. Congrats!
