fine summit & view. cw circuit from Clova car pk RHW11/04/2004
Cairngorm Club Bus meet. With a fellow member. From the car park at the end of the Glen Esk road. We walked along the track on the north side of Loch Lee and up the glen past Falls of Unich and Falls of Damff to a ruined building where the path ends. We followed a burn to the summit of Muckle Cairn before joining another path. We left it to go over White Hill (855m) to reach the summit of Ben Tirran (The Goet). We then headed for Green Hill where we met some other club members. We walked together round the rim above Loch Brandy to the Snub. We had time in hand so we decided on an extension to Boustie Ley, descending via Ben Reid. Weather was excellent.pwbellarby06/10/2002
