Thirteen members attended the April Day Meet of 2014, which was a Bus-Share with the Stocket Hillwalking Club, to Glenshee.

Anne and Shona ascended Carn an Tuirc from Seann Spittal and Ken and Lydia walked to Braemar from the Cairnwell Pass over Glas Maol and other Munros via Glen Callater. Gordon Stalker enjoyed a cooked breakfast in the Fife Arms before traversing Morrone to Auchallater.


Garry and our route off Carn Aosda


Overall this was a satisfactory and enjoyable meet where the weather performed slightly better than expected. There was a bit of drizzle and pin head hail early on for a time and more prolonged rain (as per forecast) at 15.05 but most reached sanctuary before the heavens opened in earnest just after 4pm. A few more attendees would have made the Day Meets Secretary happier however all in attendance appeared to have enjoyed their day.
