Above loch Muick

Biked in with Kathy from the Loch Muick car park to the Glas-Allt Sheil, then walked up to the waterfall. From just above the waterfall left the path and made our way via Loch Buidhe to the Dubh Loch. Mostly easy going, with a lot of grass rather than heather, and a spectacular view down to Loch Muick. I’d never been up here before and it was interesting to see the hills from a different angle. Very bleak though – it felt like the glaciers had only just left. Not much sign of spring this high but the trees are green around Loch Muick, and there are a lot more of them than there used to be. Definitely a good route, and an easy way of getting two points. Only 8km with 340m climb.
