I'd had a bit of a rest after Lochnagar, and was now getting restless. Planning on a walk at Braemar was put aside when I saw the forecast on Friday evening, for the following day. It was going to be a boggy one, with added side order of rain. Uninspiring. But Sunday was looking much better over to the west. So I pencilled in Beinn Liath Mhor.

Somewhat surprisingly I managed to miss taking any pictures of the actual summit. Not one. I guess I was too tired and really wanted to sit down for a bit. When we started moving again there were a bunch of people all over the actual summit and something in my brain must have just switched off the 'take photies' process.
