It’s a lovely walk up Glen Turret, and good to find an old-fashioned stalker’s path at the end of the landrover track. There’s a bridge over the Allt Eachach, and the path goes right up the glen. It’s the topmost path, not the sheep tracks, and, although faint, it’s marked with small cairns (note to cairn kickers: leave them alone, they’re historic monuments, put there by shepherds and stalkers). Leaving the path, a rising traverse on rough stuff gives tough going to the mossy top of big Carn Dearg. Down is also rough, with gruesome peat hags at the col, but the climb to little Carn Dearg is on easy grass. Seriously cold and windy, with snow, so very glad of a super-fast climb, for warmth. A brief huddle by the cairn and off down to Sron a’Ghoill on easy ground, then a descending traverse to the path. On removing the cag at the path, I was amazed to find water pouring out of the cuffs of the Buffalo. That’s some wet then!Gill13/04/2017
