/ Deeside area xc sking
I was at Ballochbuie (nr. Invercauld) on Sunday. Conditions were absolutely superb.
Went for a shuffle at Glen Tanar on Saturday. There were plenty of folk out. We did a small loop, which was essentially a circuit of "The Strone", which will be obvious when you look on a map. It was really quite nice.
I've always thought that a circuit of Carn na Drochaide to the south of Beinn a Bhuird would be good. I'm guessing it would be best to go up the Slugain, and back via Glen Quoich.
I also remember a fantastic half day on Benachie many years ago with good snow down to the roadside, blueskies, sun & distant views (but thats not Deeside)
There are prepared tracks at Clashindarroch, but that's not Deeside. There were enough folk out in Glen Tanar on Saturday for enough good tracks to appear.
As Scott pointed out, at Clashindarroch (nr. Huntly):
White mounth from the Cairnwell, heading out East towards Broadcairn gives good going on nordic skis - nice way to collect yr munros too :)
Keep an eye on the wind direction tho . .
