A walk in the woods to enjoy the Autumn colours. Then a short stiff heather horror from the weir by the new power house. Not too grim, but you would not want it to go on much longer. Summit however is very rewarding with views into the pine forests and up Glen Strathfarrar. A lovely wee hill.fasgadh27/10/2022
