The Ben Avon foursome

Sat 22nd Aug
Great day out in the mountains. 40km, 7.5 hours total time.
Ben Avon circuit, with a detour to Dubh Lochan, returning via Upper Glen Gairn. Great day, overcast but a nice 15 C with a southerly breeze to keep it fresh on top of the Torr.
Fantastic streams scenery, with them full after all the rain, tumbling waterfalls down every stream.
Saw 4 prize red deer stags close to Dubh Lochan, and a large herd on the southern skyline on way down to Glen Gairn (via Allt an Eas Mhoir). Also lots of Ptarmigan in their summer plumage on the high ground. Glad to have had the bike waiting for me on the descent.
