Choosing a slightly different route from the norm, we headed out by Horny Cross and Inverquharity before tackling the sharp climb up by Kinwhirrie and along the ridge that ends up at Pearsie Crossroads.

Pausing there to re-group we then carried on past the Iron Kirk and down by Balloch then up to the junction where we turned along the Ballintore road. After the descent over the Quharity Burn it was hard work as we turned full into the breeze with the only shelter being afforded by the steep climb up by Auldallan. No sign of any restoration at Ballintore looks a wee bit more dilapidated each time we pass it. From there it was down to Lintrathen where the road a round the western edge was rather icy.

On the way home we split up with myself , Charlie and Norman extending the run a bit by climbing up over by Bamff then down into Alyth Den before heading home by Airle, Westmuir, and Kirriemuir.
