A very clear crisp morning at Glenshee, Fumbled about trying to find the start of the walk, ended up just heading up towards the ski lifts stopping briefly at the bottom of a lift to ask the easyest way up, continued up to top of Carn Aosda, stopping for a sannie and a brew, Got pic taken by passing lady walker, chatted briefly then headed on to Carn a Gheoidh, lots of snow every where, fantastic views, passed the frozen loch Vrotachan , another sannie at Carn a Gheoidh cairn then off to the Cairnwell, passing the sign post, took a few more pics at the top of the Cairnwell and headed back down, excellent views of the hills from here, back at the car by 17: 30 and the ski center was almost deserted by now, slow drive back to Braemar stopping again briefly to capture the herd of deer grazing at the bottom of (unknown to me) hill, an excellent days walking, I may have done them in the wrong order but still enjoyed the day, plenty sunshine and clear skys with very good visability.
