Fffffffff...freezing in the Glens

Craig and Bill were out with the Milngavie Youth Cafe on a bronze training expeditions in the hills around Callander and Balquhidder.   We started off in Brig O'Turk and headed up Glen Finglas, taking the single track path for Balimore farm.

This turned out to have been badly affected by the recent deluges; although the weather was nice, the path was sodden and hard to negotiate in places.   The young people did amazingly well and found the navigation fairly straight forward.

The group made it into camp in good time but feet were damp and legs tired. Some tent pitching and into food time saw spirits raised.

A very cold night followed with temperatures very near to freezing but the views the previous night and the following, crisp, morning were stunning.

All in a good exercise and experience for the young people; despite the weather and the cold, I'm sure they can all move ahead to achieve their dreams.
