Great pic as always Sheps
Yesterday's jaunt to An Socach in Glen Ey, just north of Glenshee
The sheep ready for shearing at the start of the walk. Unfortunately they were penned on the track so a detour was needed along the other side of the fence, onto the bridge supports and over the handrail
View across to the Lochnagar hills (centre) from half way up the first hill, with the highest summit ( Cac Carn Beag ) looking like a little triangle. The summit end of Creag nan Ghabhar, is on the left. I posted pix of that walk earlier in the year.
View from the first top, looking south to An Socach, with some of the Glenshee hills beyond.
The phrase - 'right plant , right place' was never more appropriate. This is growing inside the cairn - at just under three thousand feet
The lochan down at the bealach between that first top and the An Socach ridge
View north west to part of the Cairngorms, from the east top
Looking back along the 'dog leg' plateau/ridge to the east top (centre) from the summit. The ridge leading back to the first top running left from there
Little rocky outcrop on the way back along the ridge
and a little toad
A grand day out
