Route: An extended version of this walk, which includes Beinn Mheadhoin,
is given on the previous page but one.
The times here are very slow owing to exertions the previous day. The ascents and distances above exclude cycling back from Linn of Dee to Braemar at the end of the day.
Note that I cycled 1.6 miles beyond Linn of Dee at a two-way average of 5½mph which seems almost worthwhile instead of walking.
