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

Meall Alvie

Headed SE off the top of Meall Gorm following damp vegetation with lots of flowering Butterworts. Along an estate track for a short distance then headed SE and went through the ruins of an old community. Crossed two Ford’s and kept my feet dry. Water very refreshing at the first one. Continued to Felagie then headed up Meall Alvie following a stone wall. On the top watched a Draggonfly flying round the pond. Went down the same way gathering a swarm of flies as I went. Stopped at Felagie to de tick. Returned to the Keiloch car park. Wednesday 1st July.
