I digress ! Leaving the car in gear I was soon on my way through the gate and up the landrover track towards the wee cottage and into the Baddoch Glen.
As the scarlet tinge finally receeded from my face, I found myself at the 6 foot wide burn to cross. As regular readers will know I'm a little bit feart for myself, so after taking a second or two to compose myself I managed to muster enough courage to tackle the 3 inch deep, raging torrent before me ! With the due care and concentration levels of a tightrope walker over Niagra falls I safely negotiated my way over without wetting the tops of my boots ! A small cairn marks the point immediately after the crossing where I left the landrover track and started to head up the faint path through the heathery slopes.
