Quartz cliff with a gem of a waterfall on the way

Sat 18th April
Hidden Gems – after cycling up Glentanar, past the ruined Shiel, parked up bikes to jog the remainder – just crossing the Tanar to go up ‘Alt Deas’ there is a superb waterfall to the right.

Then a clamber up the Alt Deas glen and the Quartz cliff suddenly appears behind the rising ground to the left

Met Eric, the Ranger, on the way up – he asked us to watch out for Peregrines, and not to disturb them for long – saw a pair, and Eric was very happy to have them confirmed when we saw him again on our way out.
