09 December 2006: Glen Callater Hills Walk Autumn 2006
The forecast for Saturday was significantly better than the miserable forecast for Sunday, so it was with some difficulty that I forced myself out of bed the night after the work Christmas do to go for a walk. It was worth it though, as it was a cold and crisp day with excellent views of the snowy Cairngorms. We headed for the relatively low hills on the North East side of Glen Callater which I hadn't been up before. Starting up Creag an Leachda (deep heather bashing is always good for a hangover!), we continued over Creag na Dearcaige to Meall an t-Slugain and Creag an Loch before the long trudge out along Glen Callater.

Pete taking a rest, and using up a large volume of brownie points with Isla in the process.

Having chickened out of swimming in another loch, Pete decided to test the strength of the ice.
Seemed to work just fine, although there was a bit of a panic as Alan broke the ice at the edge...
