Meall a'Buachaille, 11 Mar'09

Jake, our dog, needed his run. What better than an evening run from Glenmore campsite to Ryovan Bothy, up to Meall a'Buachaille and back. Well a run all the way for the dog and a cycle from the campsite to the bothy for me. The weather was holding, only a gentle breeze and most of the snow had melted. I met a couple of girls at the bothy and we had a chat for a fair bit - they'd been backpacking over 3 days from Braemar with the hope of bagging a few munros on the way. Hardy folk - unlike me ! Up the hill on the main path (a bit like going up Ben Nevis), took under 20 minutes. The descent took just over 7 minutes !
