The 2014 Challenge, day 12: Lochcallater Lodge to Glen Clova Hotel (9)
The resascent to Crow Craigies was easy enough, and I reached the rocky outcrops which mark its summit at noon. There was a light breeze blowing, so I sat in the lee of the rocks for half an hour or so and ate my lunch. I scanned the skyline between Tolmount and Tom Buidhe for signs of Alan and Lucy, but I did not see them. Still, they were out there somewhere.
At 12.30 I continued on my way, the same route I had taken from here as last year: down Jock's road into Glen Doll. Only this year I was here a bit earlier in the day and would be continuing to the Glen Clova hotel; and this year I had beautiful, clear conditions for the descent.
