The forecast looked a little wet, so our long round in the Cairngorms was substituted for a hike in Glenshee. Initially An Sochach was chosen but the kids decided they wanted to bag some more Munros and we changed the plan to Glas Maol. One drop out and one survivor and we met Ross and the Dug at 11.30 at the ski centre. The weather turned out to be stunning and a rather enjoyable romp around Maol then Creag Leacach was had :)
Next day and the weather was looking even worse. Heavy rain and blustery winds were forecast for the entire country. I chose Beinn Enaiglair for a short leg stretch. Turned out most of Scotland was soaking wet- all apart from the far North. I nearly got away with a completely dry outing bu the rain caught me briefly at the summit before drying off again The long drive home was in the rain though. Sometimes the weather forecast is wrong but it turns out for the better!! not often mind you!!
