First footing . . . 5th January 2016

This is the first proper hill I’ve been up so far this year. ¬†Geal Charn, 917m, above Drumochter Pass.

Ok, it was only a short run up from Balsporran Cottages (just visible in the photo), but on a cold and windy day I was happy just to run/power walk up a straightforward Munro, touch the cairn, and head straight back down to the comfort of the car.

Here’s to an enjoyable 2016 exploring the Scottish hills!
