Day 36 - Linn of Dee - The Lecht

After a slow start this morning Brian Brennan & Alan Smith headed away with Manny for 5 hills starting with Carn na Drochaide and finishing over at The Lecht. The weather was glorious but it was another hard day as Manny was not feeling great. They all survived and Brian did the first 3 and headed back for his car at Allanaquoich. Thanks Brian for dropping off the bike and taking away all our rubbish & supplying us with lots of goodies.

Archie & Sandra managed to track me down at The Lecht while Archie swapped wheels on bikes and sorted us again after having a visit to the bike shop. Sandra brought some more Cherry cake which is going down a treat. Tilly picked me up as we organised transport arrangments before heading to Tomintoul.

We are spending the night at Alan & Tilly's where we are about to have a relaxing evening in the hot tub outside.

The plans for tomorrow is starting at Carn Mor, Corriehabbie Hill & Ben Rinnes.

The "hot top"??? Are you on the wine already, or is it just your sun burn you're talking about?

Hi Manny, We have phoned and texted you but no answer. We are in Aviemore. What is the plan for tomorrow?

Hi Chris, They might not have a mobile signal out at Alan and Tilly's. I'm pretty sure they'll be starting from the Lecht ski centre tomorrow morning although I have no idea at what time (I think there were a few refreshments planned for this evening). The Lecht is about 45 minutes from Aviemore

Thanks Archie - We managed to track them down at the Lecht yesterday and had a great long sunny day on the hill.
