A damp walk, the highlight of which was reading the helpful notice at the locked gate – if we need to get through we could contact the office (5km away). A style is promised…. this was written in 2005! Photo attached.
A quick blast after work – beauty still evening …. then the weather broke. Alan
A fantastic sunny and warm Easter Monday took the whole family, including gramps, along the ridge to the Coyles. Stunning views into Lochnagar corrie and across to the still very snowy ‘gorms. Alan
Took a fine bike tour with Clare, via the river in Blackhall to find Trustach (CP 62), then on to Potarch and Craigmore Wood (88). Finally, up towards Craiglash quarry to get the Ordmore CP (91), via the intriguingly named ‘Warlock’s stone’ : alter-like but not many virgins or goats for a sacrificial spell round here? Alan
I always think of this as the alternative Scolty – no crowds and fine single track climbs. Took the single track from Blackhall in the NE, then back via the fence boundary wall. Alan
Lots of ice on the path to the Laird’s Burn from Finzean sawmill. Using an old plank, I improvised a fantastic homemade bridge to cross the burn… then 30m higher up found the large and very functional bridge crossing.
A bit of a slog up Baudnacauner, which has an utterly unspectacular summit, awash in a sea of heather. Home via Peter’s Hill to make a good loop. Alan
