Meall a'Bhuachaille Hill Race, Oct'09

New route for 2009
I thought I'd got the revised route correct for the new book, but just as well we headed up to Glenmore and gave the route the once over - it had changed again. From Badaguish, it now heads up a track to some of the thickest heather on a hill race. We aimed up to the summit and hung around to take some photos of the runners. When they approached, they looked tired - the heather had done its work ! After all my team-mates had passed, we headed down the tourist path to Ryovan Bothy, reaching it just in time before an awful rain shower hit. Photos on my Flickr page
