A day out with Duncan

Duncan collected me shortly before 8.30am with his friend Chris. We parked in Mar lodge car park in the woods and headed out on our bikes to Derry Lodge. Along Glen Luibeg where the track splits off to the Lairig Ghru we stashed the bikes in the trees. From Lairig Ghru we squelched our way to Garbh Coire Bothy. Heading up beside the waterfall we stopped for a drink from Lochan Uaine. Scrambling up a blocky narrow exposed ridge, with good hand and foot placements I didn’t look down too often. Coming out on the top of Angel’s Peak. Next stop was at the Wells of Dee for a drink from them. Back on ourselves for a bit we dropped down to Loch nan Stuirteag for a drink from it. Climbing in height we had a drink from Allt Clais an t-Sabhail and came around Buidheanach of Cairntoul. Up and down Devil’s Point the same way. Off the hills at Coire Odhar down to Corrour bothy. Back at our bikes about 5 ish. It was still really midgey. Due to a bike problem we got back to the van about 8pm or not long after but it was worth it.
