As per the forecast, the day was cloudy with light snow falling. Could have been worse!
Gavin, Lesley, Crawford, Brian, Neil, Pete, Frankie, Pam went to Driesh and Mayar. Apart from some distant deer at the start no wildlife was seen; in fact very little of anything was seen. But an enjoyable day, with easy walking and good chat. Plenty fresh snow on the ground. Amanda and Daun turned back to escort a poorly Tash back to the hut – and peeled all the tatties and neeps! Sterling effort.
Pat went to Broad Cairn and Cairn Bannoch from Bachnagairn. Deer, ptarmigan, grouse, mountain hares and dippers made for a great wildlife day. Pat fact of the day – did you know that hares will follow a path if there is one, so if there are hare prints heading off in the right direction you can follow them. Thanks Pat!
Scott, Pat, Ross, Liz went to Mount Battock via a Tour d'Angus. Cold and snowy with nae views, made more agreeable by a pint in the Clova hotel on the way back. (Said pint may have been at the expense of the dinner that Ross was supposed to be cooking, but thanks to Daun and Pam for stepping up to the plate).
