Wet day out


I decided to head back up to the Glenshee area again, although to attempt a few Munros a little further down from the ski centre. I parked at the next car park down from the ski centre where there are a group of four Munros within easy reach of the A93. These are Carn an Turic (1019m), Cairn of Claise (1064m), Tolmout (958m) and Tom Buidhe (957m). From where I was parked I had to skirt around the base of Carn na Greine before I got my first view of Carn an Turic. This didn’t take long and neither did the ascent to the summit. The top of the Munro is scattered by some large boulders which you need to be careful with near the top of Carn an Turic. There were some good views of Cairn of Claise and also of Glas Maol. From Carn an Turic to Cairn of Claise is pretty straightforward even if visibility is poor. The large shoulder of Cairn of Claise can be found easily and this leads you up to stone wall which will lead you to the cairn. It took just over half an hour from one summit to the other.

As I descended to peaty col the weather closed in and it started to rain. Visibility was still good and Tolmount and Tom Buidhe. These two Munros are situated behind Cairn of Claise and in front of Broad Cairn both of which seem to diminish the achievement of getting to the summit of both of them. However it’s a good walk and one which can be completed in less than 6 hours.
