Glen Affric excursion, October 2010

After a run of disappointing days, weatherwise, this was a glorious autumnal day from start to finish, including a long glowing sunset with glowing then gloomy landforms shading into silhouettes.

Fay led us down, or is it up, the long length of the glen past Cannich to Plodda Falls.  Glen-Affric-location-mapClick image to viewA surprising number of TDFC members had not been here before.  No one was less than amazed by the sensation of viewing the falls from the new platform.Plodda-Falls-routeClick image to view

The planned short walk back to the cars for lunch got longer and longer as the surroundings drew us into one conversation or discovery after another.Dog-Falls---Coire-Loch-routClick image to view

After lunch we drove to Dog Falls and walked up over the high knoll overlooking the Coire Loch and round the forestry track to the car park.
