Glenshee and Lochnagar Hills: Driesh (219) and Mayer (253)

Walk date: 06/02/05
My Munro #'s: 12 and 13

Well, the guidebook said 4-6 hours and seeing as I only got to the Glen Doll carpark at noon I had to put on a fair pace in February. Path up through forest was nice, coming out onto final stretch to col - no challenge with incline. Beautiful cold day with blue skies and thin snow on tops. Wind was quite strong especially on Driesch - very bare, exposed and rounded hill (would be difficult in extreme weather). Way to Mayer had very little change in height. A gentle start from Mayer toward Fee Burn become a nice path besides river/falls into glen but early on was indistinct. Back at car in 3 hours; a great weather day having allowed one of those personal-challenge paces!
