GLW091031: Craigendarroch Hill

31st October 2009

Jo and Mark came over to see us from their home at Newburgh, near Aberdeen. They brought with them their incredibly well behaved dog; one that waits for permission to leave the car, doesn't jump up and actually sits down of its own volition when it sees a passing vehicle.  Amazing!

The forecast wasn't great but we thought the rain would hold up long enough for us to climb Craigendarroch Hill and then we would have options.  

We pioneered a slightly more direct ascent of the hill than might have been preferred!

On reaching Ballater, the option we chose was to return along the river to the Bridge of Gairn and then back up the road to Craigendarroch.

Later on it looked like the river had turned into a lake as the evening mist rose over the Dee.

Jo conquers Craigendarroch.



Distance: 3.3 miles
