Day 35 - Glen Muick to Linn of Dee

This morning he had a 12 mile road cycle from Glen Muick to Lary. (I will let him tell you about the cycle). Alan Smith then joined us for the day, so the pair headed away with their mountain bikes to do Morven with the sun out. Quick turn around – sausage rolls, stovies, cakes, ice cream, how much can he eat…. 23 mile cycle just past Braemar where they did Creag Nan Gabhar in about an hour then a 4 mile cycle to Ballater for the 3rd Corbett of the day, Morrone which they are away doing now and then it will be a 8 mile bike ride to Linn of Dee where we will set out with the mountain bikes to Whitebridge and do Sgor Mor this evening.

Tomorrow (Saturday) he is starting from Allannaquoich car park (The Punch Bowl) for a 9am start if anyone is joining him and finishing over at the Lecht where we will spent the night with Alan & Tilly at Tomintoul. By the end of tomorrow it will be 100 down & 119 to go.

Fab, well done! Sorry I can't join you in the sun this weekend, I'm Corbettless in London! Keep up the good work and I'll see you next weekend.
