vacationing reindeer?

When you do a traverse of anything, there is always the question of which way to do it.

The Hills of Cromdale lie South West to North East for about 16km's.  When I done a traverse a couple of years ago I went from bottom to top thus having the wind in our backs and being able to park the car fairly high.

With a bitting Easterly wind and wanting to keep our faces in the sun as much as possible, todays traverse was going to be from top to bottom.

Today, we saw a fox getting hassle from 3 crows, 3 reindeer obviously on a mini break from the Cairngorms and some rather large cairns.

Sometimes it's easy to overlook the little hills, but not today.
