FYI, I've updated the website with an 'ABZ101 Profile' page.  This is personalised, so you need to visit http://www.cosmics.org.uk/abz101/profile.php?FirstName=zzz&SecondName=zzz (where zzz is replaced by your name).

There are links from the ABERDEENSHIRE 101S CHALLENGE page, but only to the people in the 'Top 10'.  I'll add more links from other places soon.

The Profile page has a map showing which hills you've done and what's left to do...

This Tuesday it's Cheyne Hill & Fetterresso from car park at NO 84406 88340 at 18.45 then Marine Hotel Stonehaven.  There's a small car park just off the A957, coming from Stonehaven on the left just before a bridge over the Cowie Water.  You need the Cheyne and Fetteresso map from the Maps page (select from options at top of home page), please print this and bring it with you, there are various route options marked of different lengths.
 
Remember your recommended kit: Map, compass, whistle, mobile phone, full body cover, emergency food.

Yes, I tried to upload to the web, but it failed for some reason.

Has anyone got a good way of shrinking these files?  Winzip isn't very good...
I suspect the resolution is too high.

The Lochnagar map is not on the web site(101s are) but I sent out by email.  Mail me if you want it again - but it is rather large.

Several people planning a long run (25 - 30 miles) in heart of Cairngorms in preparation for various ultras. Possibly circuit of Loch A'an from Coylumbridge side. Shorter and longer versions expected.

Loch Muick Car Park NO 30967 85060 for Lochnagar Traverse OR Loch Muick 101s OR Loch Muick Skyline, 10.00
 
From Loch Muick can do the 101 route - it's 22K and ~4h, or some sort of traverse over Lochnagar - perhaps we could do Lochnagar, Carn a' Choire Bhoidheach and White Mounth, then back down by path by Dubh Loch, the whole skyline traverse would take a while longer.  Or anyone for a short run could go round the Loch?

See website for map.

I'm thinking of organising a trip to the Isle of Bute, perhaps 20th August.  does anyone fancy joining in?

The West Island way has mixed terrain, with gentle hills, lots of coast, some grassy fields and a few tracks.  No road that I know of.  30 miles.

Can stay in http://www.butebackpackers.co.uk/

Sat - West Island Way (http://www.isle-of-bute.org.uk/wiw1.shtml),
Sun - biking in Cowal, or sailing(?), or sea kayaking: Bute kayak http://www.kayakbute.co.uk/

The ferry to Bute is from Weymss Bay, 30-40 mins beyond Glasgow.  Allow 4-5 hours from Aberdeen.

This Tuesday it's Mither Tap  Grin from Visitor Centre at NJ 69818 21695 at 18.45 then Grant Arms, Monymusk after.
Note the change from the original published programme due to a clash at the venue for the orienteering with other groups.  The Cosmic Orienteering will now take place at North Kirkhill (NJ 85396 11445) on Tuesday 17th May at 18.30.
Please remember your recommended kit: map, compass, whistle, mobile phone, full body cover, emergency food.  The map required is the Bennachie one from http://www.cosmics.org.uk/maps/maps.php , it should be downloaded and printed (alternatively the Aberdeen 1:50,000 OS map covers it).
The list of recommended kit is the same as that required to be carried in all long and medium (and some short) hill races under SHR rules, it is designed for your safety when out in the hills.
