[TR] Duchray Hill/Mount Blair


RJ Webb

Windy day out on an easy pair between Glen Isla and Glenshee.

Duchray was a bit Lake district like. (without the horrid paths).
Went up from the south which meant a wade through a bit of a bog to
start but the rest of the way was easy and dry.

View north to the big stuff. All snow gone except cornice remnants
and the odd patch.

Very fine views up Glen Shee to the Dalmunzie Hotel, and that very
good looking range of hills that just fail to get into the Corbetts.

Down , lunch in the car and a 1 1/2 hour round trip up Mount Blair,
home of that infamous mobile mast.. The culprit is Orange - Gits.....

The mast is one thing, its the erosion scar made by the vehicle
damage dragging th ething up there that is worse.

A new addition is a very good toposcope incorperating a space for
multiple memorial plaques.. An attempt to control the problem? Very
detailed and a walk in horseshoe.

Down the scar , just realised I am now half way through the
Docharty/Graham list.
