April Showers came with wind, rain,sleet, snow and brother in law. The latter prefers cycling to running so I was kind of thinking of heading to the Vat car park and see what weather did. Went wrong at first junction so ended up on A97, so plan B took us to Loch Davan then road to Raebush and up to Culblean hill in blizzard conditions. Gloves were not up to task but David enjoyed descent to Rashy Burn. I shelved Crannoch hill and headed to cafe viafiring range and Monument. Once warm headed to the river, a place I once lost mycar keys as it got dark, so had not been back. River was great in high water and fisherman out in droves.

Pretty tired by time Aboyne was reached. so much for a short bike ride.
