Lochnagar Day Meet
8 Jan, 2017


Twenty four members and prospective members attended this year's meet.  Three chose a low level walk from the Spittle back to Ballater, one  circumnavigated Loch Muick with the remaining twenty joining the Presidents Party.

As might be expected the group soon spread out and at the top of the land rover track it was agreed to split into 2 groups, with the fastest 7 taking the lead. 

The views were stunning, which with the sun, no wind, no rain and no midges made up for the the lack of snow.

All 20 reached the summit, from which various descents were made.  The main group of 13 descended by the Glass Allt, visiting the bothy before returning to the bus.

After picking up those that had walked to Ballater we were again provided with an excellent high Tea at the Burnett Arms where we were joined by a further member that could not make the bus.

As always a most enjoyable day out.

Many thanks to everyone for their company.
