Great to see the sun again after days of constant rain and people out enjoying the sun.. Tomorrow I am out with the Moray Mountaineering Club on their Bus meet to Glenshee and Lochnagar over in the East Coast. I have spent the day getting sorted as it a busy day with little free time most will be on the hill.
The weather looks not bad and it is a long day with the bus meeting us just after 0715 at Forres then about 2 hours to Glenshee and the it will drop some of and then the bus will head to Lochnagar and await till 1700 so it gives a chance of a good day. After this we have an hour in the pub and then home. I have not planned my day yet as there are so many ideas, I will wait and see the weather and how it is faring.
That is not it for me as I have my Midnight walk on Ben Rinnes starting at midnight for the Moray Walking Festival where myself and Alan Rowan (The Midnight Mountaineer) the man who climbs the Munros at night is going to be with the group we are taking. It will be a hard day and night a bit like a call – out? It is also the longest day so we may be lucky with the weather. It may be a long day for me as well?
A suitable boulder on the Mountain was chosen by members of the current RAF Lossiemouth Team, and was then airlifted out by an RAF Search and Rescue helicopter during a training exercise – even though it had to dump the rock prematurely to attend an emergency. By various stages the rock was taken by road to Shrewsbury, where it is currently being cut to shape, polished and inscribed with letters in English, French and German, in recognition of all who gave their lives in the First World War. The project is being funded entirely by the RAFMRA members.
