Glen Prosen/Clova Day Meet
31 Jan, 2016

Twelve members headed south from Aberdeen on a chilly Sunday morning. Despite making good time on the A90 south, the roads up Glen Prosen thwarted us. The East road was closed (unknown reason) and the bus became stuck on a snowdrift on the West Road. Having extricated the bus we decided not to push on and reversed our route to Glen Clova instead. From there (Wheen) the Presidents Party of 7 ascended Ben Tirran to The Goat before traversing NW on the plateau to Green Hill and finally descending by Loch Brandy to the Clova Hotel. Time was taken to practice  step cutting, cramponing and even some Tai chi on the trig point. 


Those not in the PP went for various shorter walks around the Glen.


A welcome drink was enjoyed by all at the hotel before making our way back to Aberdeen.

Everyone enjoyed a great day despite not achieving the planned Munro.
