So today we were going to climb our first munro, Lochnagar. Unfortunately illness and very low cloud cover put paid to that so instead we opted for a couple of hours walking around Loch Muick instead.
The walk wasn’t too bad, though I think we seemed to go the opposite direction to everyone else considering how many times we had to stop to let oncoming walkers past. I just wish the cloud had lifted a bit more so we had a better view of the hills looming over the area as we were driving in and walking round. It would have been especially good to get a glimpse of Lochnagar even if we weren’t able to get up it today. The hill’s not going anywhere though so we’ll try and get it again in a couple of weeks.
Once we got home our thoughts turned to tea. Mince and tatties was suggested so how could I resist taking the opportunity to get a picture of mince and skirlie for the blog? It’s only taken me a month! I’ve now updated the recipe for this with the image below, so take a look and give it a go it you haven’t already.
I hope you all had a great weekend.
