THE BRAES OF ABERNETHY
The temperatures have returned to 'average for November' the last couple of day and some strong winds today. Karen and I had a walk to 'The Castle' from Dorback Lodge. This isn't a castle as such but a spectacular rock feature in a wonderful deep ravine below the more modest hills in The Cairngorms. We saw no one all day and it's a fine low level walk for a windy day. Looking through the gorge you can get a good view of Ben Avon and sadly a lot of snow as disappeared, but the weekend looks like a return to colder and snowy weather on the hills.
