BLAIRGOWRIE AND DISTRICT HILLWALKING CLUB
Seventeen members enjoyed walking on a fine autumn day around Linn of Dee.
Disappointingly the weather forecast predicted extreme conditions so, instead of tackling the high hills of An Socach and Inverey, the club adjusted plans and completed a shorter, lower-level walk.
The route headed north from Linn of Dee up Glen Lui crossing over to Glen Quoich via the picturesque Clais Fhearnaig.
Having ample time, walkers studied the rich flora, regenerating Scots pine, wood ants, lizards and colourful fungi.
On the approach to Glenshee, the party had clear views of at least one white-tailed eagle.
Stunning autumn colours were also enjoyed, especially in Glen Quoich.
