Run Saturday 23 April – Loch Muick

Overcast and with forecast (and actual) rain, 4 Cosmics – Anita, John C, Gary, Bob S, decided to forego the pleasures of Lochnagar and do the 101 route on the south side of the loch. Navigation got interesting at times – especially when we found that Gary’s compass was telling porkies – he seems to be a one man walking talking magnetic anomaly due to a magnetic treatment for sore back. We duly collected the photographic evidence on the 5 summits. Returning on the main path and along the Loch, tried to direct some Spanish tourists in ponchos along the loch side rather than up Broadcairn – but they didn’t listen, we shared an Easter egg at the cars – just as the rain came on with a vengeance. Stats were 21.07 K, Total ascent 731m. Pics are on FlickR Aberdeeenshire 101 Group
