Shooting Greens loop through Blackhall on the bike from Banchory. Dumped the bike, and ran/walked up to cp at Hill of Goauch cairn, then back down again. The pinewoods up there were as nice as usual and somewhat atmospheric in the snow but the weather got progressively worse once back on the bike again. An easy decision to abort the intended route back (via Ballogie, and up through Sluie) for one as quick as possible by dropping down to the Dee and peddling hard to keep warm. Very cold and wet by the end. Not nice at all.
