Muir Cottage, Inverey, Braemar

Friday 21st April - Sunday 23rd April

The April meet of the Kyle Mountain Club (KMC) saw 9 members head to the eastern Cairngorms, basing themselves very comfortably in the Cairngorm Club hut on the road from Braemar to the Linn o' Dee.  The cottage provided everything necessary for a convivial meet after a long day on the hill.  Having breakfast in the old forrest watching the red squirrels was a great way to start the day.

The good weather saw Carole and Clare arriving early on Friday via Dinnet after a walk up Morven.  

Saturday saw us on Munros, Corbetts, Glens and bikes; Carn an Fhidhleir, An Sgarsoch, Cairn Liath and Culardoch.  Three of the team headed to Corour bothy via Derry Lodge.  All-in-all an active day.

Sunday saw Chairman Len up and away early heading for a day out on Mount Blair while the rest of us had a lie in.
