After some hill walks last summer I was finding that my legs cramped up while driving home, to the extent that driving became impossible and I’d sometimes have to stop the campervan and stretch muscles. After the walk up A’Bhuidheanach Bheag and Carn na Caim yesterday I did quite a lot of stretching before getting into the driving seat and this seemed to do the trick.
Despite a below average forecast, the weather stayed reasonable for the walk, though a bit windy and some drizzle later on. These are two relatively easy mountains, as you start the walk at some altitude on the A9 and there is not much descent between the two.
On the way, we heard stories from Lindsey’s friends about their walk up Mt Kenya last year.
The track down the mountain was not difficult, but there were some loose stones in some steeper spots, making the descent hard on the balls of the feet.
The two mountains were my 86th and 87th Munros. I’ve been at this lark for decades, and haven’t even climbed 100 yet!
