A Foxy run

Sat 13th June
A lovely loop, following directions from Nick – cross the Gairnshiel bridge & follow track in off the road, follow the road out for about 1k to track opposite Shenval. Follow track up towards Coire an tSlugain, with about 0.5 k through heather on deer tracks to ‘the notch’. Up to the summit for the point, then south along the ridge to the actual ‘Fox Cairn’. Great views of Glen Gairn below.

Then descend via burn to the west, and along track to bridge at Tullochmacarrick.

Onwards to my 50th point at Cnoc Chalmac – in the drizzle, so no photo….
Back to the road via Rineten, after finding a private crypt in the woods to SE of Cnoc Chalmac.
Very nice circuit.
