GRA - Loch Muick Walk
Sun 25th Sep 2011
organised by Grampian Scotland

Car Count : Unknown
 
[ show pre-run info ]

Five cars/six folk met up at Banchory car park for a wee bimble to the Spittal of Muick before heading on a clockwise circuit of the loch on foot!  Weather overcast and cool for most of the day but DRY!  Stopped at Betty’s Bothy, otherwise known as the Glas Allt Shiel, which belongs to the Royal family, for a bite to eat before continuing to Allt na G and the main track back to the car park.  Saw a red squirrel scurrying up a tree opposite the visitor centre when we started and a Golden Eagle at the north end of the loch as we made our way back to the cars.  A number of other folk also spotted it and we all stood watching it for what seemed like ages.

It was good to meet Scott and Margaret on their first outing with their tidy Mk1 1.8 and hope you enjoyed yourselves.
After the walk, we made our way via Birkhall (with a pointy-hatted bobby, helicopter and Special Branch folk), South Deeside Road, Dinnet and Tarland to Aboyne for tea and scones at The Sign of the Black Faced Sheep before splitting for home.

Some of us were later stopped in Kincardine o’Neil where there was a HUGE police presence.  They were asking if we had been on the road the previous Saturday, presumably investigating the death of the motor cyclist who had apparently skidded on diesel.
