6 September - Morrone

Late afternoon and back in Braemar there is much activity and an air of excited expectation as the day of the Gathering draws near. The sun is shining, Range Rovers prowl the village street, the car park is full of motorvans, the Co-op is bustling with beer-buying locals and visitors; the staff are helpful and very pleasant. All in all a lovely atmosphere pervades the village.

We've been up Morrone via the golf course road and access track which although an ugly scar, makes for easy walking. Several others were there when we arrived all wrapped up against the cold. Down the way we came. Views variable. Some rain.

Not much else to say really.

That access track didn't make for easy walking last time we were there ... but it was February and it was, in places, particularly deep in fresh snow!

Hi Gayle. I remember reading about your less than perfect conditions on Morrone. We've only had good conditions once - spring snow, blue skies. Cold, wind and rain have been the norm on every other trip. I suppose if conditions had been good, we wouldn't have been on Morrone!
