For Whom the Bell Tolls

Well there we are: Lochnagar back in full winter clothing, all the buttress routes looked in fine shape from bottom to top. Feeling maybe I was a wee bit optimistic in putting the full winter gear in the loft with a variety of shorts and t-shirts in the outdoor draw. Plodded slowly up Glen Girnock, which has a great dirt road and is truely stunnng. At Loinveg I headed up hil and track was soon replaced by heather. Fairly short grunt to gentle slope leading to the final steepening. Several fine cairns on points of no significance with a tiny pile of stones on the summit.

Afternoon had dogs to be walked so wondered up Baderonoch Hill, descending via Lazy well. Then ticking took over and Knockergetty and Tomnaverie stone circle.
