28 March 2004: Round of Loch Muick Walk Winter 2003/2004

With the thaw of the previous week and the temperatures remaining too high to go climbing, we went for a "big stomp" on the tops around Loch Muick, going over Broad Cairn, Carn Bannoch, Carn an t-Saigart Mor and eventually Lochnagar.

It was a showery, windy day, but we did have long spells of good sunshine at points. A good freeze and some more snow would return Lochnagar into good condition but I think it's too late for that now.

The highlight of the day was Alan testing out the "pulk" (aka a modified kids plastic sledge which Kristina carried all day) for their trip to Norway in a week!
