Two more points in the Dinnet area. The snow is starting to go so access is getting easier. The boardwalk is a great place for dragonflies, but not in February! Easiest access is from the little car park on the way to the Vat. I went up the Vat burn to get to the upper part. No wildlife at all!

Biked up to Loch Muick with Pete, calling on the Falls of Muick and Cul nan Gad on the way. From the road end we ran up the Allt Darrarie, which is a nice spot and a lovely run back down. Fast bike down to Ballater and a slow run up Craigendarroch. Then coffee in the Bothy, by which I mean cake. Easy points from then on – Tullich shooting range only about 10 mins, monument only 3, River Dee about 15, boardwalk 7, bit longer up the Vat Burn – didn’t really know where the point was even though I chose it, so just went up until we ran out of clliffs and took the high path back. Finally only 8 mins to the mouth of the Logie Burn, which was very quiet and peaceful though it was getting a bit dark by then. 62km on the bike in 2 hours 20, 20 km run in 2.10, 20 mins in the coffee shop and a not inconsiderable time changing shoes.
Somewhere different with the dog and in sunshine. I still have n’t workrd out how to send my pictures.
A few pics…maybe

A fine day without running. Working and playing at the ‘Vat today. ( Burning heather and wondering up to the cliff to chat to the superstar)
