Finally made the summit and 25 mins up there was enough before dropping down to hill of saughs, hill of turret and thankfully back down to the car. Many attempts at gliding on our backsides failed

Well done on getting up there in these conditions. What was the road lke up the glen?

Roads were good, really do-able; although a few sections of Ice Blocks from one side of the road to the other.
Twas a bit of a slog at times, but there was a decent bit of track available

Indeed a map; when we were in the clag it got a fair bit of use!
Wish I was out again somewhere today, today is supposed to be even nicer!

Me too - it is even nicer round here too. Apparently there was a fair bit of new snow in Aberdeen overnight but its another brilliant blue sky day now... & I'm in a very quite office Got tomorrow off but forecast is now for snow in the morning - we'll see. If not could well head off for the Linn of Dee
