With friend. From Spittal of Glenmuick on bikes to Glas-allt-Shiel. Objective: all Munro tops of Broad Cairn and Cairn Bannoch. No stalking today. After Broad Cairn and Craig of Gowal continued to Crow Craigies. The 1997 and earlier editions of Munro’s Tables have Crow Craigies as a top of Tolmount. However, examination of the contours indicates that it really is a top of Cairn Bannoch and that is how it is now regarded. Continued to Fafernie, Cairn Bannoch, Cairn of Gowal, Creag an Dubh-loch.pwbellarby06/09/2013

Solo. From Glen Doll car park along Jock’s Road. Above bothy I went off route and found myself too near the burn. I climbed up the hillside and rejoined the proper route to reach the summit of Crow Craigies. I returned on the proper route, noting that at the point where I went wrong it was not obvious that the path went diagonally up the hillside. The weather was good. I carried a heavy sack for training.pwbellarby20/09/1998
