Translation from Gaelic = ‘hill of the herdsman’
Distance 8.5 km / 5 ¼ miles
Ascent 510 metres / 1666 feet
I stayed on at my work place at Glenmore for an extra night this weekend, so I could meet up with ‘net acquaintances who were passing through the area. I had not met the fellow bookcrosser, Sujie before, but from our emails before her visit, I learned that she and her husband would be interested in joining me for a walk up a small hill during their stay. I choose to share the delights of Meall a’Bhuachaille with them, as this wee hill gives a lovely view of the Cairngorms mountains.
After the poor forecast of the previous day we were lucky to have a lovely warm, sunny afternoon.
