Mortlich and Craiglich

After spending our days being lavished with attention from our children (cup of coffee in bed, and cajoling them on family walks in the spring sunshine), Marie and I met up for a late afternoon run. Setting off from my home in Auchinhove, we went past Warhead to Tillylair farm. From here there is a land rover track that takes you up short of the top just north of Mortlich. A quick trudge through the heather brought us to the summit. From here we descended down the usual route and took a right into the Coull tracks. We followed back round the west side of Mortlich returning up to and along the boundary fence. We crossed the aptly names “Glen of Peat Lochies” which was as you would expect, before heading up to the hill above Lochmanse. We then continued from here up onto Craiglich, just in time to catch an amazing sunset over Morven (iPhone photo does not do it justice). From the top we descended back to Auchinhove through the forestry tracks. Run surprisingly longer than you would imagine at just over 10 miles.
