'Glen Feshie to Linn of Dee"
10 June 2007

The meet was attended by twenty members and one guest. Three parties set off from Achlean on an overcast morning which deteriorated for a time but cleared up around lunchtime to give pleasant walking conditions with some good views later in the day.

A low level group of five walked through Glen Feshie and via the Geldie burn to White Bridge then onto Linn o’Dee. A fine walk was had, the highlights being the very friendly horses at Ruigh Aiteachain bothy, rucksack probing and all, and the river crossings which entailed removal of footwear on occasions.

The two other groups opted for the high level crossing of the two munros, Monadh Mor and Beinn Bhrotain, the difference between them being the approach to the plateau. A group of eleven, which reduced to nine quite quickly, ascended by the path to Carn Ban Mor then over Tom Dubh to the munros. The Presidents Party of five ascended by Coire Garbhlach, a fine corrie with a steep headwall, and they were rewarded with the mist clearing just before the climb out giving good views of the enclosing crags.

These two groups merged at the summit of Monadh Mor and completed the walk as one making the bus with minutes to spare. A tired but happy group made the journey back to reach Golden Square at 8:30pm.
