Another nice walk today, at the start it looked like the sun was going to break through. It did but only by the time I was coming down, the tops covered with cloud.

A fair number of red deer about and many ravens croaking in and out of the clouds.

A new walk for me yesterday. Beautiful day with great views of Crianlarich and Ben Lui munros on the way up. Little in the way of wildlife in evidence. A few deer roaring the the extreem distance and the odd raven’s croak.

I went back over this walk today. Glorious weather, a touch of frost and completely clear sky in the morning. The hills were fulll of the sounds of roaring Stags and I think there must have been hundreds of deer between Ben Each and Stuc a’ Chroin.

Lots of harems with stags parading around and chasing rivals I got good, if distant views of the goings on especially from the summit of Stuc where I ate lunch and peered through my wee monocular . Lots of ravens too.

Whangie Evening

17 Sep

The nights are getting shorted here. Last evening/late afternoon I went for a quick walk round the Whangie.
The weather was decidedly changeable, poured with rain on the drive, Glasgow looked covered with rain while the Loch had a bright blue sky.

Just past the Whangie itself there was a group of Ravens enjoying the wind, catching the lift and then folding their wings to dive.
There seems to be some forestry work going on around the path and hill. I guess that will mean a lot less grouse, which I’ll miss watching.

Last Week I though I’d take another walk to Meall an Fhudair. Weather wise not the best day, some fairly unpleasant wind and sleet for a while.
Instead of going to Beinn Damhain after Meall an Fhudair, I returned viaI’ll be going back as there would be some great views on a clear day. No eagle this time but I saw a nice bunch of ptarmigan on Troisgeach.
