Beinn Bhreac & Carn an Fhreiceadain - 16 April

Easy stroll over Beinn Bhreac & Carn an Fhreiceadain on the big track out of Kingussie. Low clouds probably hid the best of the views but the wild life more than made up for it.

Four hares playing in the heather wearing the last of their winter coats suggested Spring is just around the corner although the weather doesn't seem to be paying attention. A little further up Beinn Bhreac a fifth hare seemed unsure whether to keep an eye on us or on the pair of ptarmigan cavorting nearby. Descending Carn an Fhreiceadain a black grouse wandered over to see us, stood on the track and chatted at length before turning his back us, seemingly in disgust, and walking away.
