A "glorious" day in Glen Feshie

Route: Mullach Clach a' Bhlair

Munros: Mullach Clach a'Bhlair

Date walked: 14/07/2019

Time taken: 7 hours

Distance: 20km

Ascent: 861m

We had been looking forward to this walk since we came up to the Cairngorms as we had heard it was a very beautiful Glen. We had wondered about using the bikes, but reports of the path having been washed away put us off. We needn't have worried as they have done some repair and we could have got the bikes past the difficulties without to much gymnastics :crazy:

So we started out from the carpark and it was a good decision as we got to really appreciate the Glen :D

It was easy crossing all the burns as we had such dry fine weather, absolutely glorious :)

The path was really excellent for most of the way. :)

We even had time to stop and see the wildlife, which we would have missed on the bikes.

Having enjoyed the Glen the hill came into view. We met a couple of guys who told us how brilliant the refurbished Bothy was , they'd been in there for three days, perhaps another time, when just site seeing.

Tree line goes quite a way up the hill which is what they are trying to achieve here with the reforestation.

Eventually we ran out of trees and just had the bare hillside, but we missed the shade as it was hot :roll:

The summit wasn't much to look at :shock:

Just the walk back, bit cooler going down and the forest to look forward to.

A really great day out :clap:
