I must remember not to go up Bennachie on a Sunday afternoon ever again. On the way up, someone had music playing from a portable player (mobile phone?). I gave up saying 'afternoon' to people after i stood to one side of the path i was descending to let an ascender through, and my greeting was met with silence. Civilisation? Aye, and these are just stones lying around. I made a mistake me trying to tell the kid that it was an old pre-Roman fort, but no-one heard.
Other than that, sunny. Got to top in 40mins. Lungs and heart still in need of exercise, but legs seem to be on automatic, searching out best track without using too much of the little grey cells. I need to get out more.
