|Our new car?|
The walk itself started with a long steady climb with some great views looking back down over Loch Kinord and to Morven. It was a warm day but there was enough of a breeze that we didn't overheat.

From the top of the first climb, we then had a long downhill section towards the Water of Tanar with Mount Keen facing us.
There was a short section alongside the river and then a wee climb up a boggy path until we joined another track that took us round the South of Black Craig and Clachan Yell and then back into the very pleasant Glen Tanar forest and back to the car park where they had set up a marquee for cakes, sandwiches, cups of tea and ice cream.
We also picked up some first aid kits, beanie hats, a t-shirt and a water bottle so all-in-all, a fantastic day out with lots of goodies.
Throughout the walk, members of the AMRT were giving directions and handing out juice and sweets - all with a friendly smile. I hope I never need these guys to come and help me, but it's great to know that they're ready to help find and rescue people who get into trouble out on Scotland's hills - something that they need donations to be able to do, so please sponsor us by clicking on the button below.
