NN9898 : Summit of Ben MacDui

near to Allt a' Choire Mh?ir [water Feature], Aberdeenshire, Great Britain

Summit of Ben MacDui
Summit of Ben MacDui
Scotland's runner up in height. The summit cairn and trig pillar in usual mist at 1309m. Often inaccessible due to evil weather, it was relatively benign on this day. A popular tourist hill, the summit smells almost as bad as the top of Ben Nevis. It could be worse, one of the landowners planned to build a 30m+ high pyramid up here as a mausoleum, and to out top that 1344m upstart in Lochaber.
Last time I was here I could see from Caithness to the Cheviot, not so today.
This is the hill version of Loch Ness, reputed haunted by a variety of apparitions the favourite being a 5m spectre who takes one step for every 3 you take.
