Hill: Hill of Garvock
Date: Sunday 24th January 2016
Company: Myself and Becky
We left our hotel south of Glasgow early this morning with a view to
ascending Meikle Bin, which would be a new hill for both myself and Becky. The weather was not however in our favour as we drove along flooded roads to get to the starting point.
On arriving at the starting point, we sat in the car waiting for a break in the relentless rain.
Several other cars with occupants were doing likewise. After waiting thirty minutes with no sign of the rain stopping, we set off for home with a view to potentially ascending a new hill for Becky during the journey home.
The weather remained poor until north of Forfar beyond which the rain had stopped but there was still low cloud. We agreed to ascend the very easy Hill of Garvock near Laurencekirk.
We parked at the road high-point where there is a small car park. On the plus-side, thanks to the low cloud we couldn't see any of the nearby wind turbines
