A group of 20 walkers set off from Aberdeen to travel to Glen Prosen for our outing to the lower Angus hills of Cat Law and Long Goat. The day looked promising, dry with light winds and reasonable temperatures.

 

 

 

We arrived at the starting point of Easter Lednathie leaving our driver to negotiate a turning point for our large bus in the narrow glen roads. Our party split into two groups with the smaller party heading west up Glen Uig for a low level walk, while the main group headed south on a track up Peat Shank hill to reach the ridge line and on towards Long Goat. The weather was now misty with lingering low clouds though there was sufficient breaks to enable easy navigation. The route back along the ridge towards Cat Law was straightforward as we followed the fence line to reach the trig point and summit cairn.

 

 

 

Most of the group then continued on a slightly longer traverse over Hill of Stanks and around Glen Quharity to return in bright sunshine via Glen Uig to our finishing point at Easter Lednathie. Fortunately our bus was able to park off the road near farm buildings.

 

 

All returned in good time but we had to forgo our half hour pub /coffee stop as a weekend AC/DC pop concert in Kirriemuir was causing heavy congestion in the small town. We therefore departed direct home to Aberdeen arriving 30 minutes earlier than scheduled.
