The 2015 Challenge, day 9: Derry Lodge to Braemar (2)
I paused briefly at Mar Lodge to see who was about. Les and Issy were there, and they were heading out through the Morrone Birkwoods - which was my intended route for the day - so I decided to tag along. In all the times I have been from Mar Lodge (or Inverey) to Braemar, I had never yet been through the birkwoods. I had always just trudged along the road. Well this year, I decided, it was going to be different.
