Mudlee Bracks

From Mount Battock headed West then NW and connected with the track going to the Hill of Cammie . Followed the track until it zig zaged away from the top and headed straight to the top of Mudlee Bracks. Picture shows Mount Battock and Clachnaben in the distance. We then took a direct line to Slochd on the Fungle Road.Then headed down the Fungle and on to the track all the way to the car park at the Forest of Birse to my car which we had left there earlier. The run down the Fungle and through the valley was particularly enjoyable listening to Curlews and about 30 Lapwings. On the top, Golden Plover were very close. Numerous Hare and Rabbits crossed our path. A very pleasant run. 25.80 KM. 1008 m elevation gain
