15 May 2016, Glas Maol/ Carn Ait

We had 33 walkers on our May walk. In the end nobody opted for the lower walk. We split into 3 groups, one group doing the higher walk and the other two the alternative. We all set off from the car park opposite the ski centre at Glenshee and headed up Glas Maol. At the top the higher walkers headed straight on to Monega Hill whereas the other two groups turned right and headed up Creag Leacach. They walked along a rocky ridge which included Cairn Ait. The weather was ideal for walking and the visibility very good. The bus met us all at the Spittal of Glenshee. A phone call ensured that ‘The Bothy’ in Braemar stayed open and refreshments were had there and in the Invercauld Arms before heading home.
