GLW091030: Glen Tanar anticlockwise

30th October 2009

Glen Tanar is a good choice in almost any weather, offerning a range of options with plenty of forest if shelter is needed.

Normally we do it clockwise but as rain was threatened and we had had two long walks in the days previous we decided instead to go anticlockwise from the car park.

We visited the view point then climbed to meet the road before taking the estate track that leads past the horses and around behind the estate offices.

A dramatic interpretation
of the climb beyond
the viewpoint.

We turned round at the little lake which was looking splendid to cross over the river to return back down the glen on the otherside.  

The sun was shining as we passed the old church, almost tempting us to stop.

Sadly the tree by the fine old bridge back to the road was not as brightly coloured as it has been in previous autumns so the picture here is from 2003.

Inevitably we lunched at the Black Faced Sheep in Aboyne which was as good as ever.



Distance: 3.2 miles
