A working wander through Perthshire.

Over the last few days I have been working over in The Glens of Almond, Turret and Lednock. Sandwiched between Loch Tay and high above the towns of Crieff and Comrie these Glens offer beautiful hill walking and long distance foot paths.  We walked from near Monzie through glen Turret, into Glen Lednock at Invergeldie and over to Kenmore on Loch Tay. Camping gave us solitude and a sense of history whislt passing stone circles and old ruins of shielings. Once off the newly made land rover tracks [ which are starting to invade the glens] the sense of place was very special indeed. We took in Ciste Buide a Claidheimh .759m which is a fine Graham. It has a huge rock crevasse on its summit ridge which is impressively deep! The weather was mixed but between the heavy showers the autumn light was spectacular. Often walking through the Glens is as rewarding as ascending the tops.

Early evening at 750 m above Dunan.

Looking back down the Invergeldie Burn.

Camped in Gleann a Chileine.
