Thoroughly frustrated to have a calf, let's call it a, big niggle with all this fabulous snow about. Hence needs must.
Out from the distillery at Balmoral with T...upon recommendation of D and SW.
Once past the locked gate the snow on the land rover track was excellent. Tracks of a vehicle were just the perfect width. Took the track down to Bovaglie - even more picturesque than usual - then back to the main track. T returned at that point whilst I headed out another 3.5k onto the shoulder of Meall Gorm. Tenpted to nip down to Loch Muick but wouldn't have been popular. Back from there. Rather ignored RB and partner walking the other way. Didnt recognise them :-).
Excellent and no calf issues. One large herd of deer beyond Bovaglie and just two or three couples or small family groups.
