I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

From Banchory - Saturday

From Banchory
Saturday 16th October

Today I ascended Mount Shade (507m) and Clachnaben (589m). Clachnaben has a substantial granite tor on its summit which I clambered up on greasy wet rock

at great peril.

I met various people and then returned by Hill of Edendocher and the small bothy at Charr. It started to rain five minutes before I got to the bothy. There was already a couple in situ, who although only out for the day, had a stove and were brewing up. I had some coffee left. We had some pleasant chat, and then I was on my way again now in sunshine. This was a pleasant round and about eleven miles with about two thousand eight hundred feet of ascent. All the people I met were Scottish.

The pic is distant Clachnaben.
