Short blog – Went to Redhthye near Portsoy today climbing between the showers. We parked in the usual car park and there were lots of feathers and a awful smell, see photo. I thought a lot of birds have been killed as the car park looked like it was covered in dried blood, with very strange a couple of bloody bags and rags about. I have just been told it was a blackening a local ritual before a wedding still stunk the place out……………… Such is life but I feared the worst, worth checking?
The smell was overpowering and this is a stunning area we managed a couple of climbs before the rain came and then walked back. The car park is still has an awful smell.
